Takam set for Joshua challenge

Takam set for Joshua challenge”

Don't miss any action.

World heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua (19-0, 19 KOs) participated in a conference call Friday to discuss his October 28 heavyweight fight against Carlos Takam (35-3-1, 27 KOs), a late replacement for Kubrat Pulev who withdrew from the fight with a shoulder injury.

The Cameroonian, based in France, is determined to seize this opportunity.

"I believe in myself".

"We have Joshua at 1/50 to defeat Takam, even shorter than the 1/33 on offer when Pulev was the opponent, and with a brutal KO predicted at 1/28, the Brit is sure to move on to bigger fights in 2018".

Takam was unsuccessful when he challenged Joseph Parker for the WBO heavyweight title in New Zealand a year ago but says he will not be overawed by the occasion when he fights in Britain for the first time in his career.

"AJ is a good boxer who likes to box and I like opponents who like to come forward and throw punches".

"It's a hard position for AJ having prepared meticulously for the style and height of Pulev, he now faces a completely different style and challenge in Takam. I like to get stuck in as well", he explained.

Joshua has been in reflective mood ahead of his latest bout with Takam and speaking to BBC YouTube (hat tip) he took a quick stroll down memory lane of his last fight back in April.

"I'm not scared, 80,000 fans means nothing to me. It's about me and him".
