Francis Ngannou’s confidence has skyrocketed as it should have after giving Tyson Fury one of the toughest fights of his career. Ngannou will face Anthony Joshua on 8th March in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. More people are vouching for Ngannou’s victory after witnessing what he’s truly capable of doing.

Francis Ngannou believes he will outplay Anthony Joshua and shock AJ and the entire boxing world once again. The betting odds are in favor of Anthony Joshua, making Ngannou the underdog for this fight. However, Ngannou wants everyone to know that this isn’t the first time he has been doubted, and as always, he is ready to prove all the doubters wrong.

Francis Ngannou on facing Anthony Joshua

Recently on the High Performance podcast, Francis Ngannou spoke about fighting Anthony Joshua and explained how he looks forward to ‘taking his soul’. “Nothing is impossible, right? We don’t know the strength of Anthony Joshua but even though I don’t believe he has that strength, but we’re going to find out,” Ngannou said, as quoted by “We’re going to find out, and I think the reverse is going to happen.

I’m going to be the one taking his soul. I won, look at me now, look at my life, look at where I was when you think I lost. You think because some foolish judges make some decision, that change anything in my life? My family that I was telling you about, they were sitting in the first row watching that fight”.

“The dream that I was in since I was kid, I was, that night, living that dream on top of the world. I was there. And for all the people that (have) been doubting me, I was there proving them wrong.

For everybody that ever looked me down, I was there proving them wrong. I won everything”.
