Joe Joyce vs Daniel Dubois 28/11/20
Ismael Salas Sent Home After Testing Positive for COVID-19
“Joe should have trained in Vegas with his coach but coronavirus has screwed everything up for everybody,” Adam Moralee, Joyce’s lawyer, said.
“Salas is a top coach with a lot of fighters and he tried to prioritise Joe Joyce, he did get over here, but he had to go back to Vegas because he is a loyal guy.
“We wanted Salas with us the whole time but he had to work with his other fighters, so he was unable to. We knew the risks.
“We were concerned about Salas going back to Vegas, having left on October 31. Being in a gym around other fighters we were concerned that he might contract coronavirus, it was a risk.
“We believe that Steve Broughton is a world class trainer and we have the experience of Jimmy Tibbs, who has been in the corner for every Joe Joyce UK fight.
“Joe is absolutely fine, Steve has been his main trainer since May, including the Wallisch fight.”
“We put measures in place to make sure that when he arrived back in the country, he was isolated from everyone,” Moralee said.
““He has been away from everyone, especially Joe, he has been in a separate hotel, he got a separate taxi here, he was tested alone and went to his room.
“Then his test came back positive and he has had to go straight home.”
