About the Anthony Joshua v Carlos Takam fight
The Anthony Joshua v Carlos fight was made after Wladimir Klitschko decided to retire from boxing. Kubrat Pulev was been the mandatory challenger for the IBF world title for over a year, but was forced to wait due to the record-breaking unification fight at Wembley between Joshua and Klitschko. Then Kubrat Pulev had to pull out due to injury, so Carlos Takam was brought in at the last minute in order to cover the spot. After the box office fight, both fighters made it clear that there was a rematch clause in the contracts, that both Joshua and Klitschko keen to take up the option. The rematch looked all set to be heading to Las Vegas, until Wladimir Klitschko decided that he had enough of the sport and called time on a glittering career.
Now the Joshua v Klitschko rematch was over, Joshua would have to face Pulev or be forced to vacate his IBF title. With both Joshua and Matchroom promoter Eddie Hearn, stating that AJ wouldn't be vacating any title, the Pulev fight was quickly made. It was just a question of where the fight would take place, being an Autumn fight it needed to be held in an indoor arena. Following Anthony Joshua selling 90,000 tickets at Wembley most of the UK's indoor arena just weren't bigger enough, this is when the Principality Stadium in Wales became the front runner and was soon confirmed as the location for the next chapter in the Anthony Joshua career.
