Paris, France - Where will Tony Yoka's next fight take place against Germany's Christian Hammer 24-6 (14 KOs)?
Initially, the French heavyweight prospect was scheduled to face the world ranked gatekeeper on December 7th at the AccorHotels Arena in Paris. However the decision was made not to spend the 80K Euros rental fee that would have been required to secure the venue. It was concluded that selling the 16 000 seats would have impossible on such short notice. While the bout is still considered "scheduled", the arranging of an appropriate space is as of yet unconfirmed. A victory over Hammer would vault Yoka into the top tier of the world rankings.
