🚨 Former heavyweight champion makes Anthony Joshua vs Francis Ngannou prediction

Posted by

Anthony Joshua fights Francis Ngannou in Saudi Arabia on March 8th.

Ngannou will once again start as an underdog but not as much as he did when making his professional debut against Tyson Fury last October where he put in a spirited performance against ‘The Gypsy King’.

One man that knows what it’s like to shock the world is Hasim Rahman who famously dethroned Lennox Lewis in 2001 and he gave his assessment on the fight.

Speaking to FightHype he said: “I think it’ll be a good fight while it lasts. I think Joshua will beat him. At this point, Ngannou is not unknown anymore. Now he’s a Top 10 contender, so Joshua has to train differently for him than Fury trained for him.

“Fury trained thinking he would knock him out, Joshua will train for a Top 10 contender so you will see a significantly different fight and I think Joshua will prevail.”

He continued: “I think Joshua looked a lot better (in the last year), and now he has a body of work to look at so he can prepare well for Ngannou. We know the guy is tough, he’s for real, he’s cracking, so it’s a little different. When you know what you’re going in there with, preparation is the key.”
