Joe Joyce returns to the ring this weekend as he looks to edge closer to a potential clash with Joseph Parker and eventually a shot at major heavyweight gold.
Joyce, 36, last competed almost a year ago, requiring six rounds to see off Carlos Takam, and the Briton was expected to face Parker this year. That bout recently fell through, however, and so Joyce (13-0, 12 KOs) has turned his attention to Christian Hammer.
The German (27-9, 17 KOs) is fresh off a win against Drazan Janjanin, whom he stopped in the first round in May. Hammer, a former opponent of Tyson Fury, is now out to build momentum as he faces Joyce in London.
The heavyweights will square off in a headline contest at Wembley Arena this Saturday.
