Anthony Joshua has seemingly taken the place of Deontay Wilder in the heavyweight division, following Wilder’s unexpected loss in a lackluster performance against Joseph Parker in Saudi Arabia last month. Joshua is now scheduled to face Francis Ngannou on March 9th in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, in a ten-round bout. MMA journalist Ariel Helwani broke the news on a social media platform formerly known as Twitter, now known as X.

Saudi Arabia’s chairman of the general authority for entertainment also announced that there will be a press conference on January 15th in anticipation of the mega fight as well. Ngannou steps into his second boxing match facing another huge task in Anthony Joshua. Tyson Fury and the former UFC Champion match was decided in a split decision, proving that Ngannou was not all power. He has a lot of skill. He packs a strong punch.

Some experts believe that Anthony Joshua could be a good opponent for Francis Ngannou. Joshua has been knocked down in the past, making him a potential match for Ngannou’s power. Ngannou’s ability to drop Tyson Fury has made this a highly anticipated match among fans and could result in a big payday for both fighters. Joshua’s last fight on December 23rd against Otto Wallin was a definitive stoppage, leading fans to believe that he has regained his dominant form.

Who’s looking forward to the fight?
