How to watch the fight online and on TV this weekend

Joe Joyce will be looking to maintain his unbeaten record on Saturday night when he takes on Christian Hammer in London.

The heavyweights face off in a main event at Wembley Arena, where Joyce last stepped into the ring.

The Briton (13-0, 12 KOs) beat Carlos Takam in the sixth round last July, while Hammer, 34, is looking to build momentum after his first-round knockout of Drazan Janjanin in May.

German Hammer (27-9, 17 KOs), a former opponent of Tyson Fury, appears to be standing between Joyce, 36, and a matchup with Joseph Parker — a fight that could happen later this year.

Here’s everything you need to know.

When is it?

The fight will take place at Wembley Arena in London.

The main card will begin at 7:00 p.m. BST, with ringside walks for the main event set to begin around 11:00 p.m.

How can I watch it?

The event will be shown live on BT Sport in the UK, with subscribers also able to stream the action live on the broadcaster’s website and app.
