Boxer Anthony Joshua posted his biggest weight on the scale today before facing Carlos Takam in defense of his International Boxing Federation (IBF) and World Boxing Association (WBA) heavyweight titles.
Joshua weighed 115.2 kilograms, more than the 113.4 prior to his victory over Wladimir Klitschko in April.
Takam, a Cameroon-born Frenchman who counts 35 wins, three losses and a no-decision match, weighed 106.6 kilograms.
“I read everywhere that he was going to come with a lot less weight,” Josua told Sky Sports.
I’ve been running a lot. Maybe I’m starting to put on kilos and find my natural weight. ” “Takam comes in with the mindset that he has nothing to lose. It is dangerous to face someone who comes with such a mentality, but I have to deal with those styles, “he said.
I have to take him down, I’m still hungry, I always will be. The result will be the same on Saturday, “concluded the Briton.
