Tony Yoka vs Carlos Takam: UK start time, how to watch, Full card

On Saturday night, Tony Yoka and Carlos Takam collide in a French derby, and we’re telling you how to watch every second of the action.

While albeit controversially, when Yoka entered the professional ranks with an Olympic gold medal around his neck, most thought a world title reign was inevitable. And he fuelled those expectations with an array of impressive performances.

The towering Frenchman packed his resume with victories over Dave Allen, Christian Hammer and Peter Milas. Therefore, despite his reputation taking a hit for having to serve a drug ban for missing three tests, his journey towards the top seemed on course. However, it all fell apart when he welcomed Martin Bakole to the Accords Hotel Arena.

The Congolese heavyweight battered Yoka, comprehensively beating him via decision. Therefore, with the stand-out amateur’s career in danger, he knows he needs a big win this weekend. But Takam isn’t coming to make up the numbers.

The Cameroonian-born brawler is no stranger to a firefight. Throughout his career, he’s gone toe-to-toe with some of the best in the business, pushing the likes of Alexander Povetkin and Derek Chisora to their limits. However, he’s yet to secure a career-defining victory. Thus making this weekend all the more important for him. So with this contest bound to provide fireworks, here’s how you can watch.
