Anthony Joshua stops Takam in 10th round, retains heavyweight titles

Anthony Joshua was taken to the 10th round before stopping the durable Carlos Takam and retaining his WBA and IBF heavyweight titles in front of an estimated 75,000 fans in Cardiff on Saturday.

The referee moved in to stop the fight after Joshua caught Takam with a hook-uppercut combination and was moving in to land more blows. The Frenchman shook his head in disgust and many in the crowd jeered the decision.

At the end of an uncomfortable evening for Joshua, the British boxer of Nigerian descent earned a 20th straight win that likely set him up for a unification fight in 2018 with either Joseph Parker or Deontay Wilder.
