According to Jeff Powell’s Scorecard, Joshua won six rounds in the bloody clash to emerge victorious at the Cardiff’s Principality Stadium, while Takam who came as a surprise opponent for the bout after Cubrat Pulev withdrew from fighting the British boxer after suffering a shoulder injury won 4 rounds.
