Weekend Scorecard: Joshua busts up Takam, Whyte decisions Helenius, Jurgen Braehmer advances in WBSS, Three Lions results from Hamilton

Reigning heavyweight kingpin Anthony Joshua (35-4-1, 27 KOs) retained his WBA and IBF heavyweight titles with a tenth round TKO stoppage win over Carlos Takam (20-0, 20 KOs) earlier this evening in Cardiff. Takam, a late replacement, was a tough nut to crack with his good defense and awkward style but “AJ” slowly broke him down and busted him up round after round. Joshua scored a knockdown early but Takam soldiered on and the bout was stopped by the referee due to accumulate damage in Round 10.

On the same card, top rated heavyweight puncher Dillian Whyte (22-1, 16 KOs) pounded out a lackluster twelve round near-shutout unanimous decision over a tentative Robert Helenius (25-2, 16 KOs). Not much to report on this one other than the scores were all Whyte with little meaningful action.


Former light heavyweight titleist Jurgen Braehmer (49-3, 35 KOs) set up a World Boxing Super Series clash with Callum Smith by outpointing Rob Brant (22-1, 15 KOs) on Friday night in in Schwerin, Germany. Scores were 119-109, 118-110, 116-112.
