Anthony Joshua called out to rematch by Carlos Takam, who also wants Tyson Fury fight after missing out on December bout

CARLOS TAKAM is gunning for Britain's best in Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury – following missed chances with the pair.

Takam has won four on the spin, following consecutive fights in the UK, against AJ in 2017 and Derek Chisora a year later.

The 40-year-old is already plotting revenge and will be willing to return to England for either rematch.

His promoter Joe DeGuardia told Sky Sports: "We are working on various possibilities for Carlos.

"To answer your question, yes we would certainly entertain fighting any of Britain's top heavyweights.

"Carlos wants the best fighters out there."

Takam was in line to make a comeback in the UK in December, as Fury searched for a homecoming opponent.

The WBC champion, 32, has not fought at home since 2018 with his last four all Stateside, including a rematch win over Deontay Wilder, 35, in February 2020.

But after their stipulation for a trilogy expired in October, Fury turned his attention to an undisputed title decider with Joshua, 31.

And to prepare, he wanted a tune-up bout in Britain, with Takam and German Agit Kabayel, 28, both considered.


But in the end, the money could not be fronted, meaning Fury goes into his career-defining fight with Joshua in the summer after a long layoff.

And it also meant Takam, who believed he was all-but certain for another title shot, was denied a crack at Fury's unbeaten record.

DeGuardia said: "He was 100 per cent confident.He clearly thought that he was going to win.

"He was training very hard and was very much looking forward to the fight.

"I think we were at I would say 98 per cent done [in negotiations] and then it just changed in one day."
