The 39-year-old Cameroonian (representing France) made his debut in the professional ring in 2005 and held 43 fights. The last time Takam entered the ring in September 2019 and beat Craig Lewis. Carlos’s track record consists of 37 wins, 5 losses, and 1 draw. In his best years, the African heavyweight defeated Francois Botha, Michael Grant, and Tony Thompson.
The most famous rivals Takam lost. In particular, he was knocked out by Alexander Povetkin, Anthony Joshua, and Dereck Chisora, and also was inferior in points to Joseph Parker and Gregory Tony. Last year, the Cameroonian was supposed to box with Oleksandr Usyk, but the Ukrainian was injured.
Carlos is only 187 cm tall, which is not a lot by the standards of heavyweight, but the boxer’s arms are very solid – 204 cm. The African is a massive heavyweight, weighs 115 kg, although in his best form he weighed no more than 107 kg. Takam is a puncher and knocked out 28 opponents. Carlos is boxing in the right-handed stance and is not distinguished by good endurance, although technically he is quite good.
In March, the Brazilian turns 40, and behind his shoulders, there are no achievements in professional boxing. However, Maldonado is a more famous fighter than Takam, as he spent a good career in mixed martial arts and performed under the auspices of the UFC. In MMA, Fabio held 37 fights and won 24 fights. The Brazilian defeated Gian Villante, Joey Beltran, Michel Falcon.
In professional boxing, Maldonado began his career in 2002 and spent 29 fights, scoring 26 wins. It is curious that all of his wins are premature. However, Fabio did not remember anything outstanding at a high level. The last three fights the Brazilian hopelessly lost – Oscar Rivas, Alexander Teslenko and Michael Hunter. At the same time, Maldonado holds blows well and only once lost by knockout.
In MMA, he performed mainly in the light heavyweight category, so you can not call him a heavy heavyweight. Fabio’s height is 185 cm with a span of 189 cm. The Brazilian boxer in the last match weighed a little less than 109 kg. At the moment, Maldonado occupies the 351st line in the rating of the heavyweight and is close to the end of his career.
Carlos Takam vs Fabio Maldonado Prediction
Bookmakers do not give the Brazilian heavyweight any chance. Carlos Takam opened as a clear favorite.
We believe that in the first half of the match, Carlos ahead of schedule will win the Brazilian counterpart and put an end to his career. Last year, Maldonado was beaten by a less rigid puncher in the face of Michael Hunter.
