All the details for David Oliver Joyce vs Stephen Tiffney

TwitterFacebook

David Oliver Joyce, the 9-0 (7) Irish Olympian from Mullingar competes for his first professional championship, as he vies with Scotland’s Stephen Tiffney, 10-1 (4), for the vacant WBO European featherweight title.

Joyce made the last 16 in Rio two-and-a-half years ago in the culmination of a decorated amateur career. He’s been busy and destructive since turning pro in June 2017 but against a moderate level of opposition; Tiffney is only his fourth opponent with a winning record.

Tiffney, on the other hand, has fought two previous scheduled 10-rounders, although did come in overweight for his only title contest, when he lost a decision for the Scottish belt to Lewis Paulin.

Date

The bout takes place on Friday April 5.

Venue

Emirates Golf Club, Dubai.

Rounds scheduled

10 three-minute rounds for the vacant WBO European featherweight title.

TV Coverage

Coverage is on IFL TV YouTube channel in the UK and ESPN+ in the US, from 3pm UK time and 12.30pm ET, 9.30am PT.

Undercard highlights

While Joyce vs Tiffney has the most interest, nominal main event sees a clash for the vacant WBC International super-flyweight title between 12-0 (8) Nigerian Aliu Bamidele Lasisi and 10-1 (6) Ricardo Blandon of Nicaragua.

Also on a big bill is UK-based Kazakh southpaw Sultan Zaurbek, who trains with Angel Fernandez at Raptors Gym in Sutton. The 22-year-old lightweight was an elite amateur and has dazzled thus far as a pro. He gets China’s hard-hitting Chenghong Tao, 7-5-1 (5).
