In a recent interview with IFL Tv, Eddie Hearn explained how he looks forward to seeing Anthony Joshua winning against Francis Ngannou.

“It’s a tough fight against Ngannou, because it’s difficult to do that against a guy with only ten rounds. It was even harder for Fury last time, and still hard for AJ,” Hearn said, as quoted by boxingnews24.com.

“At least we’ve got ten rounds to break it down, but it’s a very dangerous fight. We’re all nervous, but we’re all excited. That’s what you want in a sport. It’s going to be two giants going at it.

Can you believe it’s only going to be two weeks this Friday? “Nganou is tough, he’s dangerous, but I think Joshua will knock him out. I think it might take six, seven, or eight rounds, but I just want to see his hand raised and move on.

I believe Joshua will be too much and have too much for him”. Francis Ngannou outplayed Tyson Fury in many rounds, most felt that he won the match. A rematch between the two is the only way to clear all doubts.
