Anthony Joshua vs. Francis Ngannou: Eddie Hearn’s “nervous” prediction
Eddie Hearn, the promoter of Matchroom Boxing, will watch his fighter Anthony Joshua face Francis Ngannou in March.
The former UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou, who steps into the ring to take on the toughest guys in the squared circle, has given boxing a boost of adrenaline. One of the greatest heavyweight fighters of all time, Tyson Fury, was the opponent for “The Predator” when he made his triumphant boxing debut back in October. The obstacles are still there when Ngannou takes against Anthony Joshua, the former undefeated heavyweight champion, in the coming month.
Even though Ngannou had never fought in a professional boxing contest prior to his showdown with Fury, the legendary Eddie Hearn discussed how dangerous Ngannou is in an exclusive interview with GIVEMESPORT.COM. Additionally, Hearn gave his guy, “AJ,” specific instructions on how to maintain hopes for a British megafight with the “Gipsy King” in the near future.

Although it’s not much, the ten rounds of tape are more than Fury had, and if Joshua gives it his all, he should prevail. Hearn acknowledges that the fight is dangerous, but he goes into further detail for GIVEMESPORT.COM as to why he believes Joshua will prevail.

Hearn acknowledges Ngannou’s extraordinary strength, but argues that Joshua is untouchable when he is performing at his best:
