This Friday night in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, the boxing world sets its sights on a heavyweight showdown with the potential to shake things up. Former two-time unified heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua steps back into the ring vs a hungry challenger, Francis Ngannou.

Former Champion Seeks Redemption Against MMA Powerhouse

Ngannou, the French-Cameroonian powerhouse, is no stranger to Saudi Arabia. This marks his second fight in the Kingdom, but this time, he faces a different kind of test – the seasoned veteran, Anthony Joshua. While Ngannou plans to continue his MMA career, a win here could pave the way for a rematch with Tyson Fury, further blurring the lines between boxing and MMA.

For Anthony Joshua, the stakes are high. After suffering consecutive losses to Oleksandr Usyk, he's strung together three wins in a row, but none against elite competition. This fight against Ngannou serves as a crucial stepping stone on his path back to the heavyweight throne.

Recognizing Ngannou's growing skills, Joshua acknowledges his opponent's strengths:

"Francis is a great fighter... strong, a great puncher and a much better boxer than we all thought he would be."
