Joyce-Takam clash July 24

Joe Joyce will risk his lofty world rankings and guaranteed future heavyweight title shot when he goes to battle with Carlos Takam at The SSE Arena, Wembley on July 24, live on BT Sport. This event will be presented by Frank Warren’s Queensberry in association with Joe DeGuardia’s Star Boxing.

Joyce (12-0, 11 KOs) is back in action for the first time since his tenth round win against Daniel Dubois last November when he captured the vacant European title and relieved Dubois of his British and Commonwealth titles. Victory against former world title challenger Takam (39-5-1, 28 KOs) will cement Joe’s status as the next WBO mandatory challenger.

  • Feel sorry for Takam being continually thrown into these fights against fighters that are far bigger than him.

  • Takam is no joke. He’s an underrated guy. Felt bad his last loss was a lucky punch. He’ll give Joyce hell but probably lose a tough fight.

  • Takam’s career is similar to Michael Grant wish he had the size of him but unfortunately he is a small guy nowadays in this division always shows up but this looks like a mismatch

    • Chris A: Takam is going to look ridiculously small vs Joyce. And Takam at 40 y old has his best days behind him.
