British-Nigerian boxer, Anthony Joshua has achieved another milestone
after beating Cameroonian-French professional boxer Carlos Takam to
retain his WBA and IBF heavyweight titles on Saturday night.
The referee ended the fight in the 10th round after Joshua who had
injured his nose from a headbutt in the second round attacked Takam with
a hook-uppercut combination and was heading further to land more blows.
According to Jeff Powell’s Scorecard, Joshua won six rounds in the
bloody clash to emerge victorious at the Cardiff’s Principality Stadium,
while Takam who came as a surprise opponent for the bout after Cubrat
Pulev withdrew from fighting the British boxer after suffering a
shoulder injury won 4 rounds.
The fight was Joshua’s first since his epic 11-round tussle with
Wladimir Klitschko in April. He has now surpassed Mike Tyson’s record of
19 consecutive knockouts after claiming his 20th against Carlos Takam.
