British heavyweight ace Joe Joyce is set to take on German Christian Hammer next weekend after his clash with former WBO champion Joseph Parker was put on hold.
‘Juggernaut’ Joyce is unbeaten in his 13 professional fights so far and has been impressive against Carlos Takam and Daniel Dubois in his last two outings.
The 36-year-old was expected to take a step up and face experienced Kiwi Parker but that fight will now have to wait.
Instead, Joyce will meet former Tyson Fury victim Hammer in London.
Joyce is eager to secure a title fight in the near future and will want to put on an impressive display in the capital.

The 12-round heavyweight clash is set to be held on Saturday, July 2 and is taking place at The SSE Arena in London.
The card will get going at 7pm with Joyce vs Hammer expected from 10pm on the night.
