UFC interim heavyweight champion, Tom Aspinall, has given his assessment on the Anthony Joshua vs Francis Ngannou clash.
The pair meet in Saudi Arabia on March 8th in another intriguing fight following Ngannou’s debut against Tyson Fury last October.
Fellow MMA heavyweight, Aspinall has shared his thoughts on the fight between the heavyweight pair.
Speaking to OLBG he said: “I think it’s great what Ngannou has done, I didn’t give him a chance against Fury and I think the fight could have gone either way. I think it’s great he’s got this other massive fight coming up against Anthony Joshua and he’s getting paid loads of money.”
“He’s obviously an absolute specimen. He’s obviously a much better boxer than everyone thought. I think his chances are quite high, beating Joshua.
He concluded: “If you have asked me that question one year ago I would have said Joshua would have smoked Ngannou easily – in Joshua’s last fight he looked really really good, he was really letting his hands go which we haven’t seen in a while – but it’s a 50/50 fight who, knows what happens.”
