Joe Joyce splits with trainer Abel Sanchez to work with Adam Booth

British heavyweight Joe Joyce has relocated back to London to work with Adam Booth.

 

The Commonwealth champion had been training with Gennady Golovkin’s mentor Abel Sanchez in California since last summer.

 

But after three fights under Sanchez, the highly-promising 33-year-old has made the switch to work with the man who led David Haye to the heavyweight world title.

 

A statement from S-Jam, the management agency formed by Adam Morallee and Sam Jones, said: ‘We are delighted that Joe is pairing up with Adam Booth.

 

‘He is a world-class trainer that will continue Joe’s development to the top, building on the excellent work undertaken by his previous coaches – the hall of famers Ismael Salas and Abel Sanchez.’

 

Joyce has risen rapidly through the heavyweight ranks since turning professional in the wake of his silver medal at the 2016 Olympics.

 

He has amassed an 8-0 record, with all wins by knockout, including his stoppage of former world champion Bermane Stiverne in his previous outing in February.

 

He is edging towards a fascinating domestic clash with Daniel Dubois after the fight for the British heavyweight title was ordered by the British Boxing Board of Control last month.
