    Joyce took the early rounds aggressively controlling the fight, despite a good show from Tiffney, who was totally over matched.

    Tiffney had a few good rounds in the mid rounds in the mid rounds scoring with right hands and left hooks upstairs during an exchange which forced Joyce to employ earmuff defense. At some point Joyce was sent to the canvas but that was ruled a push.

    Joyce regained his composure going into the seventh round for the first time in his career, he fired a series of power punches coupled with some aggression that sent Tiffney to the canvas, for the first time in his professional career.

    Tiffney beat the count but was without composure,, as he got battered to the end of the seventh round. He struggled to make it back to his corner and the referee noticing this, ended the fight.
