On March 11, an interesting boxing evening took place in Paris, the capital of France. The main event was a 10-round heavyweight bout.
2016 Olympic champion enters the ring Tony Yoka from France (11–1, 9 KOs) and a Cameroonian Carlos Takam (39–7–1, 28 KOs).

The day before the fight, at the weigh-in ceremony, Takam turned out to be heavier than his opponent (117.6 kg versus 113.9 kg).
The Frenchman fought his first fight since losing on points to Martin Bacole in May 2022. And Carlos Takam was on a two-game losing streak.
Despite his status as an underdog, 42-year-old Takam looked better than his 30-year-old opponent. Tony Yoka missed a couple of serious blows in the 4th round, received a cut, lost confidence and decided to continue to clinch and move away from the felling.
At the end of 10 rounds, two judges gave the victory to Takam, and one to his opponent (96–94 Takam, 96–94 Yoka, 96–94 Takam). Cameroonian wins by split decision. And Tony Yoke’s talented prospect has a second big fiasco in a row.
