Joe Joyce has whipped himself into incredible shape ahead of an expected easy night in London.
A former Olympic silver medalist, Joyce is on the cusp of a world heavyweight title fight after gaining number one status.
Joyce should have too much for Hammer and move on to a more significant fight later in the year.
The fighters on Saturday’s High Stakes card at the OVO Arena gathered today at Wembley for the official weigh-in before blows are traded live on BT Sport.
