The heavyweight is eyeing up world title opportunities, and hasn’t lost yet as a professional including handing the current WBA regular champion Daniel Dubois his sole loss. But he will have to settle for a tune-up fight with Christian Hammer at Wembley tonight after a deal to face Joseph Parker fell through.

Instead, the New Zealand fighter has signed with Sky Sports and BOXXER, essentially ending any hopes of the pair meeting in the near future. Now, Joyce will look to land yet another big stoppage before moving on to a major heavyweight clash in the future.

That BT Sport card will be co-headlined by a commonwealth title fight between Jason Cunningham and Zolani Tete. The event will lead into an early starting UFC card that begins later in the night.

Elsewhere in the world, Mairis Briedis will give up on chasing Jake Paul to defend his world cruiserweight title in Queensland. He faces local unbeaten fighter Jai Opetaia for the belts in the hopes of finally sealing a unification bout with Lawrence Okolie.
