While he is due to face Christian Hammer on November 27 in Nantes, Tony Yoka is expected to face the Croatian Peter Milas in December with the vacant European Union championship belt at stake.

Tony Yoka announced last May that he wanted three fights in 2020. The Olympic super heavyweight champion should keep his word. After crushing Johann Duhaupas even before the end of the first round last September for his first fight in a year, the 28-year-old boxer will return to the ring on November 27 to challenge the German Christian Hammer as part of the H Nantes Arena. But this duel against the boxer with 25 victories, including fifteen before the limit, for six defeats will not be the last for this year. Indeed, during the month of December, Tony Yoka will fight on French territory to win the first professional belt of his career.

Milas, an undefeated opponent for Yoka

Indeed, the promoter of the native of Paris, Jérôme Abiteboul, has secured for his client the right to face the Croatian Peter Milas for the vacant title of the European Union heavyweight championship. The only bidder in the race to organize the fight, the promoter has put no less than 271,000 euros on the table to organize this fight and assured that the meeting will take place in France.

Still undefeated in fifteen fights, including eleven victories before the limit, Peter Milas (25) will be a first choice opponent for Tony Yoka, who was too rarely put in difficulty by his opponents during his first eight professional fights. In addition, this European Union champion’s belt would be the first title since his Olympic medal and a first step towards his goal of fighting for a world belt.
