Joe Joyce takes fire, doesn’t care and stops Christian Hammer

World Boxing News provides results from Joyce vs Hammer happening at Wembley Arena in London.

Joe Joyce couldn’t care less if he took a punch or not as he fought fire with fire to finish Christian Hammer in four.

“The Big Juggernaut” took heavy shots at times but looked far from a world-beater.

Zolani Tete blasted out Jason Cunningham in the fourth round with a stunning blow after initially dropping the Briton.

Tete, a two-weight world champion, caught Cunningham flush as the referee considered stepping in to stop the fight.

He didn’t, and Cunningham’s head subsequently bounced off the canvas to end the debate.

Mark Chamberlain claimed the IBF European lightweight strap with a ten-round victory over the tough Marc Vidal.

Chamberlain had Vidal in trouble more than once but was forced to go the 30-minute distance.

Welterweight Mickey Burke Jr. got all the trouble he could handle from a game foe Serge Ambomo.

Burke had decent spells but was having to cover up on more than one occasion. If Ambomo had gotten the decision, there could have been no complaints.

Super-lightweight Henry Turner kicked off the action next door to Wembley Stadium in London with a six-round clinic against Polish also-ran Jakub Laskowski.

Turner dominated the fight but couldn’t get his stubborn opponent out of there through the 18-minute bout.

A points win was sufficient to take Turner’s record to 8-0.

Joe Joyce early action

Tommy Fletcher didn’t waste any seconds taking out Aron Vrnoga. The light-heavyweight scored a stoppage victory in the first session.

Vrnoga hit the canvas after the first real attack from Fletcher.
