Big Joe Joyce
BIG JOE JOYCE (born a while ago)
Bare knuckle boxer.
There are many professional and amateur boxers within the Irish Traveller heritage, among them world champions and Olympic competitors, but Big Joe Joyce is something else.
Without any formal recognition, bare knuckle fighter Joe Joyce, has a cult like status. Kind of like Ireland’s Chuck Norris. He is the everlasting king of the travellers, boss of all men. His petrol(gasoline) steeped fists of fury are undefeated. Never beat in his life, never will be beat. There isn’t any man that can beat the Joyce.
