Francis Ngannou, the former UFC champion, is set to face two-time heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua in their highly anticipated fight in March. This will be Ngannou's second time in the boxing ring after a controversial loss to Tyson Fury in October.
Martin Bakole, a former sparring partner of Anthony Joshua, has sensationally backed Ngannou to win the fight against Joshua. Bakole believes that Ngannou took his fight with Fury seriously and wants to make a name for himself in boxing. He thinks that if Ngannou lands a solid punch on Joshua, he has the potential to stop him.
Bakole also acknowledges that Joshua will approach the fight differently, as he saw Ngannou's performance against Fury and knows the importance of taking his opponent seriously. Both fighters are determined to prove themselves in the boxing world, which makes this match even more exciting.
Ngannou was originally set to have a rematch with Fury, but when Deontay Wilder suffered a surprise defeat, Joshua seized the opportunity to face Ngannou instead. The fight is scheduled to take place on March 8 in Riyadh.
It's safe to say that this fight has generated a lot of buzz and anticipation. Boxing fans around the world will be eagerly watching to see who comes out on top in this clash of heavyweight titans.
