No less dominant than his first nine professional matches was 28-year-old Tony Yoka in the review for the EBU champion of the European Union, in which he was opposed by Joel Djeko from Belgium. Djeko was a brave opponent who did his best, who was ready for an open clash and he didn’t give up realized it made sense to stay in the match.
But the referee's decision was not needed. Younger, faster, and technically superior Yoka did this match very cleverly, but also actively enough to provide the spectators with attractions and action, ie boxing as they hoped to watch.
Yoka seemed to have more desires, but also knowledge in this match. He was more focused on the match and looked superior at certain moments. In some parts, it could be assumed how the match would end. Yoka successfully went through the rounds, responding to the attack of Belgium, who really tried to make his job harder, but Yoka is the former world and Olympic champion for the reason and he is currently the 13th heavyweight in the world according to BoxRec.
The Frenchman finished the job in the 12th round, when he persistently took Djeko to the corner of the ring and then created a series of punches there.
Djeko turned his back
And very intelligently, hitting just as much as it takes to get out and time not to allow the opponent to enter the clinch and then continue with the new series.
Djeko looked helpless in those moments and as if he could no longer stand Yoka's fighting style. In the end, that was confirmed Seeing where it leads and how there is no time and opportunity to return, Djeko turned his back and the match was over.
Yoka after closing the match asked to fight with some of the top 10 boxers and in the foreground, he puts Joe Joyce, Derek Chisora and Dillian Whyte. Certainly, a fight with any of the above would be interesting for the fans.
His wife, also a gold medalist from Rio De Janeiro, Estelle Yoka-Mossley, also performed on the same program. And she came away with her eighth win from just as many appearances, defending the world IBO title of the winner over Verena Kaiser.
Estelle is now the second lightweight boxer in the BoxRecu, ahead of her is the only absolute champion and Matchroom's hopeful, Katie Taylor. Their clash with each other could be what follows. Yoka is the former world and Olympic champion for the reason and he is currently the 13th heavyweight in the world .
