Speaking to OLBG he said: “AJ is a very good boxer and is known for his explosiveness and his power.

“But you don’t become an Olympic gold medallist and a two-time heavyweight champion of the world without the ability that Joshua has.

“But on the downside, he can be hurt, knocked down and stopped and when you think of the size and punching power Ngannou has got, there’s every chance he could knock AJ out, but the bigger picture is, Joshua is a very rounded, accomplished boxer.

“He’s very skilful and heavy-handed and it’s the right time for him because his confidence is sky high from the past couple of performances.

“If he goes out and there impresses where Tyson didn’t, it’ll work more in his favour when they sit down on the negotiation table and try and make the Tyson Fury fight.”

“I still think Tyson is the best heavyweight out there, he took Ngannou lightly, but I can see where Eddie Hearn is going with AJ in order to make the match because Tyson couldn’t of struggled anymore.

“If Joshua goes out there and impresses, it can only work in his favour.”
