Joe Joyce vs Carlos Takam: Live stream, undercard, TV channel and catch-up information on BT Sport

Joe Joyce looks to continue his rise up the heavyweight ranks against veteran Carlos Takam in London.

Published: 20 July 2021 - 9.53am

British heavyweight Joe Joyce returns against seasoned veteran Carlos Takam in a bout that could move him closer to a world title shot.

Joyce (12-0, 11 KOs) is back in action for the first time since his win against Daniel Dubois last November when he captured the vacant European title and relieved Dubois of his British and Commonwealth titles.

Takam, 40, lost to Anthony Joshua in 2017 and was beaten by Britain's Derek Chisora a year later but he should provide a real test for the 2016 Olympic silver medallist.

Joyce said: “I only want competitive fights but everyone wants to avoid me. Carlos Takam didn’t even want to spar me in Las Vegas, so I’m surprised he’s taken the fight.”

“It is a testament to Joe’s character that he’d take a fight as difficult as this when a world title fight is waiting,” said promoter Frank Warren.
