Francis Ngannou AND Anthony Joshua

This meeting with Joshua will be Ngannou’s second outing as a professional boxer and the former UFC heavyweight champion is already being considered as a legitimate contender in the heavyweight division.

The Cameroonian made his boxing debut in October against WBC world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury and emerged from the contest with plenty of plaudits despite losing by a split decision.
