The Golden Hammer - 1987
By Tracy Holmes and Steve Baker

July 15. 1987.

Home favourite and defending Hammer holder, Erik Gundersen let no-one down as he scorched to his second straight Title with his second straight maximum. He equalled Kenny Carter's record of twice being the winner and became the first to successfully defend the Title.

The World Champion, Hans Nielsen had to settle for second place for the third time. Maybe only taking some consolation in beating Cradley's Simon Cross in the run-off.

There was just one ripple in the Matrix as Cradley's David Walsh took a nasty tumble in round five, breaking his collarbone.
