JOSHUA WINS AGAIN

Posted on 01/11/2017

Saturday the 28th October 2017, Anthony Joshua battled against Cameroonian boxer, Carlos Takam at the Principality Stadium, Cardiff where over 80,000 fans cheered him along to victory.

The first round was bumpy for Joshua where Takam head butted him in the nose. Could this have been Takam’s tactic from the start? Takam, a short, squat, dynamic boxer is used to fighting against larger men such as Joshua, however for Joshua this was a slightly different approach to what he is used to.

By the 4th round, Joshua was able to pay back Takam by opening a cut above his right eye, this was checked by the ref and they returned to the fight. Minutes later Joshua then knocked out Takam with a left hook to the head.

The 7th round was also another victory for Joshua leaving another cut above Takam’s left eye, leaving him poorly sighted and weaker.

The 8th and 9th round, Joshua seemed to back off slightly, allowing Takam to regain energy and fight back.

The final round of the night Joshua landed a clean, right uppercut followed by a barrage of punches which guaranteed him the win.

The fight has meant that Joshua can keep his WBA and IBF heavyweight titles and has a knockout-to-win ratio of 100%. AJ is ranked as the world’s best active heavyweight boxer.

After the fight in an interview, Joshua said “it was a good fight until the ref stopped it. I have the upmost respect for Takam, I have no interest for what’s going on with the officials. My job is the opponent I don’t have control over the ref’s decision.”
