Anthony Joshua is desperate to showcase different skills in order to build his legacy and says it is unrealistic to believe he will blast his way past every opponent.

The Frenchman became a short-notice replacement for Joshua's previous contender Kubrat Pulev after withdrawing with a shoulder injury and will challenge AJ's "super" WBA and IBF world heavyweight titles in Cardiff on October 28.

Joshua's explosive power and brutal knockouts have earned the heavyweight champion hordes of fans, but the Briton insists that style will not work against every opponent.

"I think that's the mindset of anyone who fights because he's in hostile territory with a lot of people who are not there to support him, so he will think 'what have I got to lose?'".

"Remember Takam has fought [Alexander] Povetkin, [Michael] Grant, [Mike] Perez, [Joseph] Parker, [Frans] Botha".

"He may not be the most popular in the United Kingdom or have the most social media followers but if you know your boxing you know he's been in with credible heavyweights".

"But he's definitely a credible opponent and we can't take our eye off the prize".

Google Doodle celebrates the 66th anniversary of the Studio for Electronic Music
Today's Google Doodle celebrates the 66th anniversary of the Studio for Electronic Music - the first ever modern music studio. The idea of having a programme on the radio about electronic music that was tape-recorded was pitched on October 18, 1951.

That saw him add the WBA title to the IBF belt he won in 2016.

"I've known about Carlos Takam for a long time; he's a very, very well-rounded fighter", Joshua said.

"When the Pulev fight was announced I made a deal with Takam's team to begin camp and be on standby for this fight". I swear, that's what he did! I knew he was.

The unbeaten Briton has a reputation as a powerful knockout specialist with just three of his 19 professional opponents lasting beyond three rounds and none going the distance.

"This is his golden ticket to shock the world. He's a big unit, 22 stone, and I think he will be harder to knock out because he's incredibly durable".

"I've been preparing for a 6ft-something guy and now I'm fighting this mini-Mike Tyson/Ray Mercer/Tommy Morrison so I'm going to have to revert back to some different training techniques and get ready to dig in the trenches, trade with him and slow him down a bit", he said.

"My inside game has definitely improved, so I think if we have to stand on the inside and start trading off, it will definitely be an entertaining fight for the people watching".
