Joshua v Tatam

Joshua v Takam

Coming at you live on Sky Sports Box Office from the Principality Stadium, Cardiff on Saturday 28th October, Anthony Joshua goes head-to-head with Carlos Takam to defend his WBA 'Super' and IBF heavyweight world titles.

It’s been six months since Joshua stepped into the ring to beat Wladimir Klitschko in a tense bout that saw him add the WBA world heavyweight title to his IBF crown.

Now, in a sudden turn of events, Joshua must defend his growing string of titles and knockout wins against an unexpected challenger.

French fighter Carlos Takam is stepping in to replace mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev, who was forced to pull out with a shoulder injury. So does Joshua have this one in the bag, or will the last minute change knock him off balance?

Also in the ring, the sensational Katie Taylor goes up against Anahi Sanchez for a world title of her own, Kal Yafai defends his against Sho Ishida, and Dillian Whyte faces Robert Helenius. All this and more, live on Sky Sports Box Office.

Reserve your spot on the sofa and catch every hook, jab and uppercut LIVE in HD for just £20.95 on Saturday 28th October. Booking is open now.
