The fight will still take place on 28 October at Cardiff's Principality Stadium, with more than 70,000 fans in attendance. It will feature a strong undercard including Dillian Whyte against Robert Helenius for the WBC Silver heavyweight belt.

Carlos Takam is the IBF’s next fighter in line and has been in training as the standby fighter since the Pulev bout was announced. Joshua does not want to vacate either of his belts and is keen to defend them against Takam.

Takam 36, a Cameroonian – French professional fighter and WBC silver heavyweight champion has a record of 39 fights with 35 being victory wins.

"When the Pulev fight was announced I made a deal with Takam's team to begin camp and be on standby for this fight” said promoter Eddie Hearn.

"When I called them (on Monday evening) they were overjoyed and good to go”.

"It's a difficult position for AJ having prepared meticulously for the style and height of Pulev, he now faces a completely different style and challenge in Takam - this hasn't happened in his career before but he is ready for all comers on October 28”.
