GB's Joyce knocks out Morais

British super-heavyweight Joe Joyce reached the Olympic quarter-finals by knocking out Cape Verde's Davilson dos Santos Morais in the first round.

Joyce, 30, had a considerable size advantage over his 27-year-old opponent, and shook Morais with the first punch he landed.

Morais was cut over the left eye within a minute, took a standing count after two, and failed to beat the count when he hit the canvas shortly afterwards.

Joyce will next fight on Tuesday.
