Joe Joyce vs Carlos Takam betting odds: Preview and free bets for heavyweight showdown

JOE JOYCE is the bookies' ODDS-ON favourite to beat Carlos Takam this weekend at the Wembley Arena.

It's a huge fight for Joyce after it was announced he will fight the winner of Anthony Joshua vs Oleksandr Usyk after being named the mandatory challenger.

Joyce returns to the ring after taking his unbeaten professional record to 12 victories last November when he destroyed Daniel Dubois.

Joyce is 1/16 to win again this weekend while Takam is a much bigger price at 7/1 to cause an upset.

Joyce is also ODDS-ON to win by knock out or TKO at 2/5 with Paddy Power while he is priced at 13/5 to win via points or decision.

Punters can get Takam to win via KO/TKO at 9/1 or on points at a huge 19/1.

Despite having a potential bout against Anthony Joshua on the cards, Joyce is not thinking beyond this weekend.

Joyce said: "I have to deal with what is in front of me.

"I can’t be thinking too far ahead because that is when you end up getting caught.

"So you have to deal with what is in front of you and then you can move onto bigger and better things."
