ANTHONY JOSHUA is adamant he will have a tougher time getting rid of Carlos Takam than he would have done against Kubrat Pulev following the Bulgarian’s withdrawal.

Takam will now face Joshua for the IBF and WBA heavyweight titles at Cardiff’s Principality Stadium on October 28 after Pulev sustained a pectoral injury.

The Sofia hardman had worked his way into the mandatory position for the first of those belts but when Pulev decided he was unable to fight it went down to the next man on the rankings, which is Frenchman Takam.
