Francis Ngannou is taking his boxing career very seriously; he is done with fulfilling his role only as an MMA fighter. After humbling the heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, Francis Ngannou will now face Anthony Joshua on 9th March.

Ngannou believes AJ is going to be far more easier than Tyson Fury. Unlike Fury, he thinks AJ won’t be able to get up after getting stung by his nasty blows. Anthony Joshua has speed and power, and it will be very interesting to see if Joshua can easily finish Francis Ngannou.

Eddie Hearn believes Anthony Joshua will secure an explosive knockout.

Recently on The MMA Hour, Francis Ngannou shared his thoughts on the outcome of his match with Anthony Joshua. “I think most likely (I’m) knocking Anthony Joshua out,” Ngannou said, as quoted by “I think that he’s easier to go down than Fury.

I mean, not that he’s not a strong fighter. He’s a very tough fighter, but he’s easier to send down than Fury, and it’s harder for him to get back up than Fury. No one still knows what I can do, That was my first fight in boxing.

That was my first fight. As anyone, I’m just improving, and the gap of improvement for a beginner like me, it’s huge. I’m just a beginner improving”.

"He looked amazing, Congratulations to him.

He was doing his job properly. His speed was there. He looked sharp – very sharp. But on the other hand, I think there wasn’t a response in front of him. I think I will have a better response in front of him that will put him not in such comfortable positions and situations.

Things will change. Things will be different. I will not stand there and just look at him – no. It’s going to be different. I’m going to throw some bombs out there, and he’s going to be mindful of what he’s doing”.
