Although Anthony Joshua was an overwhelming favorite to beat Carlos Takam, the bout was still uncertain as Anthony had to ensure he beats the weighing.
The two boxers Anthony & Carlos fought for a combined total of around £11million match prize. However, the total fight revenues are estimated to be huge than the above.

Carlos takam did not just be on the receiving end. He also gave few body shots. The two boxers suffered a headbutt. But Anthony Joshua began to bleed in the left nostrils. This did not reduce the pace at which the boxer was pawing Carlos Takam.
The crowd began to cheer for the British boxer when he gave Takam a uppercut that saw Carlos Takam wobble a bit to the ground.
During Round 7, Joshua continued with his impressive good jabs and stalking takam for an opening. The French boxer Carlos threw a dangerous punch but AJ was fast to swerve. In the 9th round, Takam came in very hard landing heavy punches. Takam won the Ninth round cleanly.
However Anthony Joshua won by a Technical Knockout in the 10th round.
For the 10th round of the bout, the refree had to call the game off byt TKO early in the round due to injury suffered by the French boxer. However, Takam was coming off a round he’d won. Many fans booed the referee for calling a TKO at such a time.
