Cracking night so far, 4 good fights & a great atmosphere.

The last fight is probably the most interesting, war Joyce.

Loving the WSB format tonight, makes an intriguing main event even more interesting.

Does Usyk normally wear low tops?

Round 1

Usyk is waving his right jab and springing back as Joyce tests out his straight right, measuring with it. Usyk trots clockwise around Joyce, then changes direction, back again. All feeling out and getting a sense of distance in the first minute, no serious punches from either. Joyce fires a right hand into the air as Usyk is circling wide. Joyce is throwing from too far away. Usyk is putting his right arm out to catch Joyce jabs like a horseshoe stake. Usyk uses his left glove to push off Joyce on the inside and pop him with right jabs while moving away. NICE overhand left by Usyk thrown blindly while tucking his chin and stepping out. Joyce drops the left jab on Usyk's chub lock.

10-9 Usyk

Round 2

JOYCE CAUGHT USYK! Joyce chases Usyk to the ropes throwing hard jabs and big drilling right hands. Usyk is flipping up the right jab, grimacing as he looks to work his way off the ropes and defend. Diving left to the body by Usyk from outside, missing. Joyce paws the jab coming forward. Nice 1-2 by Usyk charging in up on the balls of his feet, knocking out Joyce's gum shield. Time in. Joyce reels out the jab and starts to build up a lather with straight combinations. Usyk is getting caught while circling at mid-range. Usyk tries pinning his gloves to his cheeks while staying low and moving in and out with body shots. Joyce brushes him with the jab. BIG LEFT HAND rocketing up to the chin from a crouch by Usyk. Another nice left, hooked around wide from down low under Joyce's field of vision. Nice finish by Usyk, tagging Joyce repeatedly with the left.

10-9 Joyce, but very close (Joyce early, Usyk late)

19-19

Round 3

Usyk is moving and stalking with easygoing crab steps to lull Joyce, then darting in with mercurial lefts to the body. Joyce keeps rowing with his left jab and trying to put together scooping combos to pick Usyk off in his circumnavigation. Usyk's defense is too tight, and he's too agile for Joyce to corner. Excellent footwork and accurate overhand lefts from the high guard by Usyk. 1-2 by Joyce and a counter left uppercut by Usyk.

10-9 Usyk

29-28 Usyk

Round 4

Usyk is reaching in with the right jab, stepping in to pester Joyce, goading him into throwing and then slipping and countering while continuing to sneak inside. Joyce is rocked by a left hand, swaying like a palm tree in a strong breeze. He recovers and throws some wide sluggish counters. Usyk ducks in and taps the body with both hands lightly, then jerks back and knocks a hard quick left off Joyce's head.

10-9 Usyk

39-37 Usyk

"Clever tactic by Joyce switching to southpaw" 1 second later Usyk blasts him in the face with a lead cross.

They've been reaching for any praise to give the Lionhearts all day.

Round 5

Usyk is popping single right piston jabs coming forward, backing Joyce up without getting out of first gear. Joyce is coming closer with his jabs and plunging right hands, but Usyk is still just barely able to move his head in time to slip as he bounces around Joyce. Usyk brings his guard back up and fires the jab from it. Combination to the head by Usyk, backing Joyce up. Jabs over the head by Joyce as Usyk hunkers low and slithers from side to side, trying to lure Joyce inside so he can unleash counters. 1-2 by Usyk. Right shovel-hook by Usyk and a straight left, partially blocked.

10-9 Usyk

49-46 Usyk
