Eddie Hearn, the promoter of British boxer Anthony Joshua, expresses his confidence in Joshua’s ability to defeat cross-over heavyweight boxer Francis Ngannou.

Ngannou’s Desire to Face Joshua

Long before Francis Ngannou made his debut in heavyweight boxing, the MMA icon from Cameroon had always wanted to professionally box Anthony Joshua.

However, Joshua’s management team was initially hesitant about such a matchup.

Ngannou’s Impressive Debut

Ngannou surprised the boxing world by nearly defeating the undefeated heavyweight boxer, Tyson Fury, in Saudi Arabia. Despite being his first professional heavyweight boxing bout, Ngannou took Fury to the 10th round and even dropped him in the third round.

Debate Over Ngannou’s Opponents

Since Ngannou’s impressive debut, many boxing enthusiasts have been debating whether he should get a rematch with Fury or face Anthony Joshua in the ring.
