Given his surname, his dad could be Irish. He won a tournament in Finland last year, and three of the ten winners were Joyces!

Their other top HW's are Ukrainian and Romainian and their #1 MW Derevyanchenko is Ukrainian. All teams have guys from other countries, your teams roster can't have more than 40% foreign fighters. Croatia doesn't have a team so Hrgovic has to fight somewhere.

The UK's LHW Kamara who fought this week is from Sweden via Africa for example.

His opponent the Filipino Suarez should make for a entertaining fight. He's very aggressive, good handspeed and throws power combos. Golub/Tavares are both top MW's and should be competitive and BW Butsenko is making his debut and won Ukrainian Nationals this year. Hopefully we'll finally have a quality BW.

No, but some pros do participate. (like Avery Gibson)

I think you're talking about Joe Joyce the light welterweight. [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

Joe Joyce the heavyweight is from London but I dunno where he was born or where his parents are from.

Yes but you were furious with the other poster who was unfamiliar with Joyce and assumed he was English as though it should be blatantly evident to everyone that he's Irish. What's this obvious indicator, his distinctly brown Irish skin? His Anglo-Saxon name which most Blacks in Ireland, England, America, Canada have? If someone doesn't know him it isnt unreasonable to understand why they may assume he's English.
