Franco-Cameronian Takam, who replaced the Bulgarian Kubrat Pulev at the moment, Joshua’s official challenger but lost out on injury two weeks into the fight, became the only fourth boxer to resist the British colossus (1.98m) over three rounds, but never seemed able to endanger Joshua despite some heroism.
