Joe Joyce and Dillian Whyte Hope for an Active 2024 After Impressive Wins

In a weekend marked by electrifying heavyweight action, both Joe Joyce and Dillian Whyte demonstrated their determination to seize the spotlight in the division and pursue their respective paths to redemption.

Joyce, rebounding from setbacks in 2023, showcased his resilience and championship aspirations with a commanding 10th-round stoppage victory over Kash Ali in Birmingham. Despite a sluggish start, Joyce’s relentless pressure and strategic combinations ultimately overwhelmed Ali, culminating in a decisive right hook that sent Ali crashing to the canvas, prompting referee Kevin Parker to wave off the fight with just seconds remaining.

Speaking to talkSport, Joyce reaffirmed his desire to establish himself among the elite heavyweights, expressing eagerness for rematches with the likes of Joseph Parker, Zhilei Zhang, and Daniel Dubois in 2024.

“I want to be one of the best heavyweights in the world, and I’m right there again,” declared Joyce. “We’ll see about any opportunities in Saudi Arabia. Here in the UK and America, the world is my oyster.”

Notably, Joyce expressed openness to participating in the upcoming 5v5 event between Matchroom Boxing and Queensberry Promotions, underscoring his eagerness for high-stakes matchups.

Meanwhile, Dillian Whyte marked his return to the ring with a resounding third-round stoppage of Christian Hammer in Castlebar, Ireland. Following a tumultuous hiatus due to an adverse finding in a doping test, Whyte unleashed his pent-up frustration and aggression on Hammer, dominating the bout from the outset.

“It’s good to be back out and it’s good to get back to work,” remarked Whyte. “I’m running out of time. I’m not getting any younger.”

Looking ahead, Whyte expressed aspirations for a busy 2024, eyeing potential clashes with Joyce, Anthony Joshua, and any other challengers willing to test their mettle against him.

“Anyone. I’ve never turned a fight down, whoever wanted it could get it,” asserted Whyte.

With both Joyce and Whyte poised for an active and impactful year ahead, the heavyweight division braces itself for a thrilling resurgence of two formidable contenders hungry for redemption and glory.
