Speaking to All Out Fighting, he’s highlighted the danger that the MMA star possesses, he said:

“I think Joshua is a very smart fighter. It will still be a hard fight because you’ve got to understand, Ngannou’s got more confidence going into this fight and he thinks he can hurt, and knock out Joshua.

“He says that Joshua’s got a weak chin, so he’s going to go for that really, and try to throw those big bombs. If he connects, who knows what might happen. One thing about the heavyweight division is that if one punch lands it can change a fight.

“[Tyson Fury is] one hard fighter to hit clean. So many top guys have tried to knock him out, knock him down or hurt him. Not to sound disrespectful; I like Joshua, I think he’s a great fighter but I think he’s easier to hit than Fury.

“The way people look at boxing now, after that fight with Fury, is that boxers are a little bit weaker than MMA fighters. This is where Joshua needs to show them that boxer’s are not weaker… boxer’s are better and stronger.”
