What’s the odds? The big favorite
Joshua under no illusions insists that fight with Takam might be harder than Pulev. “I think he will be harder to knock out because he’s incredibly durable” claimed when he discovered his new opponent last week. Adding that “When you come into that type of environment, what have you got to lose? He’ll say: ‘I’ll give it my all”.
From his side C. Takam argued that “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.”
However, boxing betting bookmakers come to agree that the unbeaten in 19 professional fights is expected to secure an easy victory against the 36-years old Cameroonian. Same within the boxing community. Dilian Whyte former Joshua’s rival said in Daily Mail that “Takam isn’t strong enough to cause him problems.’ he said. ‘He’s good, but a little too small. He’ll spend his whole night running into uppercuts and right hands”.
How many rounds?
Taking into account that only two of Joshua’s former opponents managed to pass the third round so far many expect the Englishman to take easily on C. Takam. Answering to the question Joshua said that “People have said: ‘Josh, what round? What round?’ I think we’re going for a 10 to 12 round fight because this guy’s head is like a block of cement”.
Joshua is undefeated in 19 fights having played 55 total rounds. On the other side of the ring, C. Takam has won 35 of the 39 fight he had in a professional level so far in 184 rounds. The British superstar managed to win all of his fights by knockout, while the 36-year-old boxer the 27 of them.
