JOSHUA VS TAKAM CARD PREVIEW

Principality Stadium – Cardiff

This Saturday sees the return of Anthony Joshua as he looks to retain his titles against Carlos Takam (35-3-1) who has stepped in for the injured Kubrat Pulev. 

Joshua brings a record of 19 wins all by Knockout and is the current IBF, IBO and WBA Super Heavyweight champion.

Takam has won his last 2 bouts since dropping a decision to current WBO champion Joseph Parker in 2016.

Kal Yafai (22-0) defends his WBA Super Flyweight strap against undefeated Sho Ishida (24-0) of Japan. Yafai is making his 2nd defence of the title.

Katie Taylor bids to become the WBA Lightweight Champion in only her 7th bout, she tackles Argentinian Anahi Sanchez who is defending the title for the very first time.

Dillian Whyte (21-1) takes on ‘The Nordic Nighmare’ Robert Helenius (25-1). British fans will remember Helenius getting a gift of a decision against Derek Chisora in 2011. The bout is for the vacant WBC Silver title and would help the winner get a shot at the WBC Champion Deontay Wilder.

Frank Buglioni (20-2-1) faces Callum Johnson (16-0) in an all British Blockbuster for the British and Commonwealth Light Heavyweight titles.

Dave Allen (12-3-1) re-matches Lenroy Thomas (21-4) for the Heavyweight Commonwealth title. Allen has been looking in tremendous shape recently on Social Media but this is a must win fight for ‘The White Rhino’.

Also on the bill are hot prospects Joe Cordina (4-0), Lawrence Okolie (5-0) and Joshua Buatsi (2-0) respectively.

Action begins from 6 PM Live on Sky Sports Box Office.
