Francis Ngannou returns to the ring on March 8th against Anthony Joshua.
The MMA star only made his professional boxing debut in October but his performance against the WBC king, Tyson Fury shocked the world, with many believing his split-decision loss to be controversial.
Next up is another British Heavyweight in Anthony Joshua and UFC legend Rashad Evans believes Ngannou will beat ‘AJ’ and go on to become a world champion.
Evans told GIVEMESPORT: “I mean, it’s hard for me to put anything past Francis, man. That performance and now he’s gonna be fighting Anthony Joshua. I mean, I think he’s gonna do it. I made a prediction at the end of  and I said: ‘I think that Francis Ngannou is gonna be a heavyweight boxing champ by the end of the year’
He continued: “With [Winning] Against Anthony Joshua. I feel [Ngannou] kind of forces Tyson Fury to take that step where he gambles the belt and Tyson Fury, provided he gets past Usyk, he’s gonna wanna take that gamble. He’s gonna wanna take that gamble. So he’s gonna show people because, to him, you can win a fight and have your hand raised, but inside, you know, when you really lost a fight, you know, and even though Tyson Fury won that fight. He knows. He knows.”
