Carlos Takam casts his verdict on Anthony Joshua vs Joseph Parker

Anthony Joshua v Carlos Takam -  World Heavyweight Title Fight

Carlos Takam has cast his eye over the upcoming heavyweight unification clash between Anthony Joshua and Joseph Parker which takes place on March 31 at Cardiff's Principality Stadium.

French-Cameroonian Takam lost to Joshua in October in the tenth round last year at the same location, as the British heavyweight moved to 20-0 in terms of both fights won and knockouts delivered.

The 37-year-old was also defeated by Parker by unanimous decision in Auckland in 2016. So who better to analyse how they will fare up against each other.

"Joseph Parker, the guy has speed, a lot of speed. I think his speed is faster than Joshua," Takam told Sky Sports.  

"Joshua is strong, but Parker's speed is faster than Joshua and we're going to see what is going to happen in the fight - speed or strength.

"For me, those two are the best. I have respect for Parker, I have respect for Joshua. For me, they are two good fighters, two good boxers, two good champions."

Meanwhile, Takam wants to return to Britain for a fight and wants a fight with Dillan Whyte, who he challenged recently.

Of course, Whyte is currently in training to face Lucas Browne at The O2 on March 24 but Takam is willing to wait.

"After my fight, I'm going to see what I'm going to do. Maybe I'm going to make one big fight after my fight in April,"

"I would like to fight Dillian Whyte, yes."

In response, Whyte tweeted: "I will come all challenger but one fight at a time right now have got browne to focuse on and let’s make the people know I was meant to fight you in my last fight and u didn’t want it facts."

Takam is planning to travel back to the Principality Stadium to watch Joshua's unification fight with Joseph Parker on March 31.
