Anthony Joshua beats stand-in opponent Carlos Takam in tough fight

Anthony Joshua beats stand-in opponent Carlos Takam in tough fight

Anthony Joshua has moved to 20-0 but it was far from routine as the durability of opponent Carlos Takam tested Joshua's staying power in Cardiff.

Joshua plans to break him down round on round, but from talking to his supporters in Cardiff, they expect him to win by knockout within the first four rounds.

The Frenchman put on a heroic display despite two nasty cuts above both eyes in front of over 70,000 people in the Principality Stadium.

Next up for Joshua is an attempt to unify the heavyweight belts.

Anthony Joshua insists he remains humble and hungry ahead of Saturday's world heavyweight title defence against Carlos Takam.

Takam kept things awkward for the champion, bouncing around on his feet and keeping his upper body moving at all times.

It's a fascinating time for heavyweight boxing. But he came back strongly, even if he had no joy in lining up Takam for a knockout blow.

Anthony Joshua has defended his world heavyweight boxing titles after a 10th round win overCarlos Takam in Cardiff. Fighting against Wladimir Klitschko earlier in the year, Joshua suffered a knockdown in the middle of the bout and looked completely exhausted until he found a second wind.

But a shock loss to Tony Bellew in April derailed any hopes the 37-year-old had of a money-spinning showdown between the veteran star and the young pretender AJ.

The fight was paused near the start of round 9 as the doctors needed to look at Takam's cuts, who let the fight continue.

"He said 'no, no, no, what you should say is 'I am perfect and I'm not trying!'"

However, the 1,500 fans who followed the London team to Wales have been carefully contained and shop-keepers in the city are now worried about the 78,000 boxing fans.

Round 6 saw Joshua find a beautiful uppercut on Takam.

Joshua landed a very clean left hook on Takam right on the bell at the end of the round.

Joshua, 28, said he did not mind who he fought - Wilder, who is from the US, New Zealander Parker or a mandatory challenger - so long as he retained the WBA and IBF belts.
