“I’ve been just watching Pulev for the last three months and as soon as the announcement was made, instead of just typing Pulev into the search engine, I’ve just typed in Takam,” Joshua continued.
Although Takam is not expected to give ‘AJ’ that much trouble, there are still adjustments to be made in Camp Joshua due to the size difference. Joshua has been fighting big and tall heavyweights for quite some time now, Takam will be a different challenge.
“Takam has been fighting guys my size for years. I fought Brezeale 6 foot 8, Molina 6 foot 5, Klitschko 6 foot 7, I was training for Pulev 6 foot 4, Now I’m fighting some geezer who is 5 foot 11 standing up and probably 5 foot 7 crouched down rolling with his shots. It’s a completely different ball game,” commented Joshua in an interview with IFL TV.
