Joshua: I believe I can knock out Ngannou

The Briton’s fight with the former UFC champion will take place on March 8

Former World Heavyweight Champion Anthony Joshua said that he intends to knock out the former UFC champion Francis Ngannou.

“I believe I can knock him out. Definitely. I’d like to knock him out and make a statement.”

“Physically I feel strong, I feel good. Strong enough to get the job done, and mentally ready for battle. I’m looking forward to the challenge.”

“I want someone standing in front of me who thinks he can knock me out. But let’s see how good they really are. I want to be right in front of them, stopping them from achieving their goal, and see how bad they want it.”

Let us remind you that the Joshua-Ngannou fight will take place in Saudi Arabia on March 8. The undercard of the event, among others, includes Roman Fury, the younger brother of Tyson Fury, who is going to attend this event. In addition, before the Joshua-Ngannou fight there will be a fight between Zhang Zhilei and Joseph Parker. Also as part of the show, Ukrainian Andrei Novitsky will fight against American Juan Torres.

At the end of December, Joshua confidently defeated Otto Wallin, who refused to continue the fight after the 5th round, as part of the “Day of Reckoning”. Anthony stated that he was ready to fight the next fight with anyone.

Ngannou lost a decision to Tyson Fury in his only boxing fight. The Cameroonian made a good impression against the current champion title holder, knocking down the “Gypsy King” and inflicting several cuts on the Briton.
