Anthony Joshua and Carlos Takam host the final press conference before their fight this weekend.
This morning, starting at 8:30am ET, Showtime will be live streaming the final press conference for Anthony Joshua vs. Carlos Takam, which will be held this weekend in Cardiff, Wales. The final live presser can be seen in full, right here on BLH!
Joshua, who will be heavily favored to win, will be taking on a late replacement in Takam after Kubrat Pulev pulled out of the fight recently, citing injury. And really, an opponent like Takam is about as good as you could hope for in a late replacement. No, he won’t be favored to win, but he should at least be able to put up a fight.
As a unified heavyweight titleholder, Joshua (19-0, 19 KOs) is coming off a huge win over Wladimir Klitschko in April, which really catapulted him to the top of the division (despite what Deontay Wilder might have to say about that).
Meanwhile Takam (35-3-1, 27 KOs) is coming off two consecutive knockout wins over Ivica Bacurin and Marcin Rekowski earlier this year.
