 Big KO prediction surfaces as Anthony Joshua faces Francis Ngannou on a stacked card – Comprehensive Guide


The mental chess match is already in motion leading up to the highly anticipated heavyweight clash between Anthony Joshua and Francis Ngannou scheduled for Saturday [AEDT] in Saudi Arabia.

During a Tuesday workout session, Ngannou shared his observations with reporters, stating, "We were doing the promo, and he was very chilled, very relaxed. I asked him if he was OK because he looked a little nervous or something. I asked him if he was OK because I was OK. I had no problems. I was just talking around, laughing. I think we are both professional enough to know what we have to do to get to where we want to go."


Surprisingly, despite Ngannou entering only his second professional fight, having previously excelled in the UFC, he seems unfazed. The pressure appears to be squarely on Joshua's shoulders, aiming for a potential world title bout against Filip Hrgovic or a clash with the winner of the Fury vs. Usyk fight in May. A loss to Ngannou could reshape the narrative.


For more details on the upcoming card, stay tuned for the ultimate guide, encompassing the latest news, viewing information, and the anticipated ring walks of Ngannou and Joshua.


Ngannou's formidable power is forecasted to pose a significant threat to Joshua. Dewey Cooper, Ngannou's coach, expressed confidence in a knockout victory, emphasizing that Fury's durability may surpass Joshua's in the heavyweight division. Shaun George, trainer of Zhilei Zhang, echoed this sentiment, boldly stating, "Anthony Joshua gets stopped in this fight."


In another noteworthy matchup, Zhang, holding the WBO interim strap, faces off against Joseph Parker, seeking redemption for his 2018 loss to Joshua. The clash intensifies with a clause guaranteeing Zhang a rematch in case of defeat.

Australia's undefeated heavyweight prospect, Justis Huni, looks to continue his ascent in a 10-round battle against South African Kevin Lerena.


For Australian viewers, the preliminary card kicks off around 3 am (AEDT), with the main card commencing around 5.10 am. Joshua and Ngannou are expected to make their ring walks at approximately 9.50 am.
