Just as the action picks up, the referee calls time and calls for the ringside doctor to inspect the cut over his right eye. The doctor is satisfied and the fight continues.
Better combination punching from Joshua here. An AJ combo finds nothing but leather upstairs but he follows with a hook to the body that stops Takam in his tracks, then a right to the head when Takam drops his guard.
Two more big shots to the body and those shots will most certainly take their toll. Not much longer now, we feel safe in predicting.
Limited action as Joshua continues to try and measure and look for an opening while Takam remains uncommitall to closing the distance.
And just like that Takam barrels in and just misses with a right as Joshua lands a counter right that awakens the crowd. A big right by Joshua.
Takam is cut over the right eye. And Takam goes down! Referee gives an eight count and the bell rings before Joshua can follow it up. Joshua continues to move forward, measuring Takam and looking for an opening.

Takam barrels forward and tries to land something but finds all leather. Now Joshua lands a hook to the body that gets the crowd buzzing.
Perhaps a sign of things to come: Joshua appears to be bleeding from the left nostril after an apparent head butt. The size difference is even more harrowing in person than on TV.
Another round for Joshua. A bit of a feeling-out patch from both men to start. Joshua pawing with the left jab, moving Takam backward steadily, then stepping in and trying to fire a left-right combo.
Takam moving steadily in reverse. Joshua clearly trying to set up the big right. That was the main disappointment. One adjustment for the 6-foot-6 Joshua will be fighting a much shorter opponent than originally planned and a much shorter opponent than his recent foes.
All in all, what goes down in the history books is whether I win or lose. One of them is a possible unification showdown with Deontay Wilder.
Inactive for days, longest layoff of his career Joshua: Five KOs in last 10 bouts Takam: Represented Cameroon at the Olympics Takam: Joshua had not faced any adversity as a pro other than perhaps one rocky moment early in a fight with Dillian Whyte.
The he went through the crucible of the battle with Klitschko, including coming within a whisker of losing when he was knocked down and badly hurt in the sixth round.
You always question how, why and what makes people do what they do. I just feel like my heart is very big and I wear it on my sleeve in this sport.
The wealthy people are 1 percent of the world, so people just want to see you fight. They want to see you go to war. I really understand it.

But he is still on his feet. Takam attempting to throw some shots of his own but this is one-way traffic. They touch gloves and AJ is on his foe again, advancing.
Takam still alive here, calling Joshua on, throwing with all his muscularity. Upper cuts and body shots as Takam bobs and weaves, AJ is widen open at times, but this is exciting H e is slow to come out for the next round.
T akam seems energised. Swings a left, not sure it fully landed. Joshua needs to take control, move him, dominate him.
Moving his opponent around the ring now. He seems to have blood in his eye. Is he going to be able to carry on? Joshua has knocked him down with the left.
Takam cut over the eye by a right hand, referee Phil Edwards asking if Takam can continue. Joshua attacks hard assault, counter left hook puts challenger down.

He is strong, tough, and at times he has been a real handful. T akam himself walks slowly to the ring, a fist raised, a black and silver hood.
Big night for him. C alled to the ring. I think Takam is going to come out fast and I think Joshua is going to fight fire with fire. N ice anecdote from Bellew.
M y God that was a fight. I really enjoyed that. M ore of the same from Whyte, perhaps a tad more from Helenius, but I think most people will be happy enough to see this wrapped up with a home win.
B it of a dry old do this last couple of rounds. Helenius doing very little. The celebrities and champions as Cardiff puts on a party https: D ecent from Whyte but not really dangerous.
Big right hands which twice wobbled him. But he has shown his ambition as the rounds have progressed admit the Nordic Nightmare, who can box and bang, is being ground down We all want to see Whyte face Anthony Joshua again We have had a look at him.
Takam is a real tough fighter and a credible opponent. Swedish lad standing there, Whyte swinging wildly and not really landing.
Deontay Wilder will feel he has little to fear on this evidence. B ig Helenius fighting through treacle, you fancy Whyte to wrap this up.
Helenius loses his gumshield, and also appears to be in some pain with his right hand. The big Swede is not really offering much and he is looking sluggish.
F irst couple of rounds cagey, Helenius is a tall, stooping, awkward customer. Both fighters count Chisora among their scalps.
And both have landed decent shots here in round two! Helenius gets his gumshield rattled, but the big Swede smiles. Now he clocks Dillian with a heavy shot of his own!
The biggest night of my career.
