This Friday just got a little more French.
Those of you in the mood for some more post-Thanksgiving action this Friday can tune into ESPN+ for a Nantes doubleheader. Rio gold medalist Tony Yoka takes on Christian Hammer in the main event, while wife and fellow gold medalist Estelle Yoka-Mossely fights Bosnia’s Pasa Malagic.
Things kick off at 2:55 Eastern, meaning they should wrap up well before Daniel Jacobs vs. Gabriel Rosado begins on DAZN.
Despite seemingly being due for a step up after blowing up countryman Johann Duhaupas in September, Yoka (8-0, 7 KO) appears to be staying in his usual lane against Hammer (25-6, 15 KO). The German should give him rounds, at least, having taken Alexander Povetkin and Luis Ortiz the distance in prior efforts.
Yoka boasts knockouts of Dave Allen and Michael Wallish, while Hammer previously upset Erkan Teper and knocked out David Price.
Yoka-Mossely (7-0, 1 KO) likewise appears to be taking things easy against Malagic (15-6, 5 KO), whose wins have exclusively come against inexperienced or outright bad competition.
