Joyce believes Takam is the experienced name he needs to progress.
“I have accepted the fight with Takam because he is a good name, an experienced fighter, he’s strong and always comes to win. It’s going to be a great fight.
“I am totally focused on Takam. He’s not a southpaw, he’s orthodox and I am confident of my ability in this fight.
“He is a short fighter in stature so will want to get in range, throw those big dangerous hooks and get under my jab.
“It’s going to be a difficult fight.”
The Juggernaut also set his sights on Anthony Joshua, but remains focused on the job at hand.
“It’s such a great opportunity. I just can’t wait to get in and beat Takam,” Joyce said.
“So no mistakes, I just have to go in there and give it my all and get the job done.
“I have to deal with what’s in front of me. You can’t be thinking too far ahead because that’s when you end up getting caught.
“The Emirates is an amazing stadium, Joshua here would be a great one for the history books.
Carlos Takam is prepared to spring a shock on fight night.
“Joe Joyce is not the best fighter I have fought but I am going to be the best fighter Joe Joyce has fought,” Takam said.
“He is a good opponent for me to come back to the UK. London is like my second home. Fans there are waiting for me, every day they’re writing me ‘Carlos, when you come back in London? When will you fight back in London?’
“I have time to prepare for this fight and I am going to go and win the fight.
“This is a good opportunity for me to come back home and to come back up in the heavyweight division.
