Joshua also discussed his predictions come fight night and once again he credited Takam by suggesting it may take a while before somebody as durable as Takam breaks down “People have said ‘Joshua what round?’ I think we’re going for a 10 to 12 round here you know. Joshua then went on to jokingly suggest the reason for Takam’s durability was the size of his skull; “This guy’s head is like a block of cement.”
On a final note, Joshua also admits he is leaving no stone unturned as losing to Takam would put a major dent in his career and is going to do all in his power to ensure Takam doesn’t tarnish his resume by inflicting a first professional loss . He added: “In boxing, I think it’s a sport that’s unforgiving in the sense that, if Takam beat me that loss will stay on my record for a lifetime, that will always be in my legacy. “It’s not ‘oh, he was a world champion and he done well for the sport of boxing’. No, no, no he was 19-1 – that’s Anthony’s legacy.
