Anthony Joshua’s Showdown With Francis Ngannou Confirmed

Former unified world heavyweight champion, Anthony Joshua is expected to face a former UFC champion, Francis Ngannou in Saudi Arabia later this year.


Joshua was initially billed to fight Deontay Wilder but the American former heavyweight champion’s points loss to Joseph Parker in December ended hopes of him squaring up with the Brit who produced a ruthless fifth round stoppage of Otto Wallin in December, sealing his third straight victory last year.

Following that impressive victor over Wallin, Joshua declared, “I’m down to fight anyone. Whenever and whoever.”

On his part, Ngannou impressively knocked down Tyson Fury in his first professional boxing bout last October, but Fury emerged with a controversial points victory in Riyadh.

Ngannou was installed by the WBC in their top 10 of title contenders following his creditable defeat.
