Gov. Amosun, Lai Muhammed to watch Anthony Joshua fight

Takam: I can knock Joshua out

Ogun State Governor Ibikunle Amosun; sports minister Solomon Dalung; and Minister of Information and Culture Lai Mohammed top the list of the Federal Government's delegation to Wales to cheer on Anthony Joshua against Cameroonian Carlos Takam in their heavyweight fight at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff on Saturday.

He will go into the fight against French rival Takam carrying a significant weight advantage after the 36-year-old weighed in at 16st 11lbs in front of a capacity crowd the Motorpoint Arena in Cardiff.

If Joshua wins on Saturday, he will have gone unbeaten in 20 of his professional fights.

Takam was a last minute replacement after Kubrat Pulev pulled out with injury and has only had two weeks to prepare for the fight. "That's a unsafe mindset to have, but I have to deal with these styles".

Las Vegas Sands Corp. (LVS) PT Raised to $68.00 at Gabelli
Agf Invests has invested 0.26% in Las Vegas Sands Corp . ( LVS ) stock showed the move of -0.38% with the closing price of $62.91. Any way you dice it, a dip below $61.5 a share would be very bad news for LVS's technical picture in the near-term.

"I always say, the belt isn't always representation of me. the belts get taken out of the ring after, I can't fight with them on my shoulder".

As is often the case with title defences against mandatory challengers, Takam - like Pulev before him - is far from the calibre of opponent a demanding public had hoped for after seeing Joshua stop Wladimir Klitschko. If you keep on knocking on the door you find a way through. If I trashed talked more I may be more feared.

Takam seems more than aware of the massive opportunity this fight gives him, saying: "I am ready and going to give it all. Just in boxing, not the person I am".

Joshua is promoted by Matchroom boss Eddie Hearn, who is incredibly popular with his biggest fighters, the Brit is not so universally loved by boxing fans.
