Anthony Joshua will put his IBF and WBA titles on the line against Carlos Takam in Cardiff on Saturday.

Joshua was initially scheduled to fight Kubrat Pulev, but the Bulgarian was forced to pull out with a shoulder injury.

Takam will take on the unbeaten heavyweight champion instead in Cardiff, looking to become the first man to stop Joshua in the Brit's 20th fight.

The bout will be Joshua's first since his memorable victory over Wladimir Klitschko at Wembley.
