The protagonist of the story. He is known for his long bangs and for always wearing a worn out beige coat and a red flat cap.

Not long after birth he found himself in many orphanages and facilities. However, he quickly grew tired of the boring life and frequently escaped, eventually finding his way to the Doya Town the story takes place in.

Joe is rude and quick to fight, but he can also be very frivolous at times. Because of his rough upbringing he is a delinquent who likes his solitude, but he later grows to appreciate his new friends and rivals. He is not very good at understanding women, and essentially only treats them nice out of obligation.

Weight Class: Bantamweight (115 to 118 Pounds Weight Limit)

Natural Weight: Bantamweight but this changes in the 2nd half of the series and Joe becomes a natural Lightweight (135 pounds Weight Limit) because of his growth spurt change in bone mass and muscle mass. Joe weighed himself at 132 pounds before the weightcut to keep competing at Bantamweight.

He has even countered double crosses with a triple-cross, implying he has high-level technical abilities. Following his fight with Rikiishi, he begins to better develop his guarding.
