Joshua to face 12-1 Takam after Pulev pulls out injured

Champ 11-8 to win inside two

Anthony Joshua puts Wladimir Klitschko down at Wembley
1 of 1

Anthony Joshua's world heavyweight title defence on October 28 will go ahead but with a change of opponent after Kubrat Pulev was forced to pull out injured, and the prices suggest it will be quick workout for the champ. 

With more than 70,000 tickets already sold at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff it could have been a disaster, but 36-year-old Carlos Takam was quickly named as a replacement on Monday night.

Sky Bet make Joshua just 11-8 to beat him inside two rounds, with the challenger 12-1 to land an incredible upset.
