Anthony Joshua's Future Opponent After Ngannou: It's Neither Usyk nor Fury
Anthony Joshua’s path to reclaiming the heavyweight belts faces a potential hurdle, even before his upcoming bout with Francis Ngannou in March. The former champion, who lost to Oleksandr Usyk in 2021, may not get an immediate shot at the winner of Tyson Fury’s unification fight with Usyk.
Despite his upcoming clash with Ngannou, Joshua may have to wait before challenging for the titles he lost to Usyk three years ago. The chairman of Saudi Arabia’s General Authority for Entertainment, Turki Alalshikh, revealed that if Ngannou wins, he may have a rematch against the current champion. Additionally, if Joshua triumphs, the road to facing the Fury-Usyk winner could be prolonged due to potential rematches.
Alalshikh hinted at discussions with Joshua’s camp and Filip Hrgovic’s camp for a potential fight between them. He assured Usyk of two more significant fights, indicating an alternative path for Joshua.
While Joshua has expressed confidence and determination to reclaim his belts, Ngannou is equally assertive about his ability to defeat the former champion. The upcoming clash between Joshua and Ngannou adds another layer of intrigue to the heavyweight division, with potential implications for the title picture.
As Joshua prepares to face Ngannou in what promises to be a high-stakes showdown, the heavyweight landscape remains dynamic and unpredictable, leaving fans eagerly anticipating the outcomes and future matchups.
