British UFC star Tom Aspinall believes Francis Ngannou could beat Deontay Wilder and Anthony Joshua after his impressive display against Tyson Fury.
Ngannou very nearly pulled off the upset but dropped a razor-close split-decision defeat to the ‘Gypsy King’ at the end of last month.

And speaking to Sky Sports, Tom Aspinall, believes Ngannou can make a huge dent in boxing’s heavyweight division.
‘Obviously I’d love him to fight AJ or Wilder, people like that.’
‘That would be absolutely incredible.’
When quizzed about whether Ngannou was good enough to beat Joshua or Wilder, he replied: ‘Before last week I would say “absolutely not”, but what he did in his fight was absolutely unbelievable to me, I’m still in shock, nearly two weeks on. So I think he can.’
Aspinall, takes on Sergei Pavlovich at UFC 295 this weekend for the heavyweight interim world title.
