Bellew's Explosive Pick Joshua vs. Ngannou?
Anthony Joshua’s triumph in Saudi Arabia has sparked speculation about his next opponent, fueled by Tony Bellew’s suggestion of a potential showdown between Joshua and breakout boxing sensation Francis Ngannou. Bellew’s query, “Who wouldn’t want to see that?” amplifies the buzz around a potential epic clash between the two fighters.
During Joshua’s latest match on the Day of Reckoning card, where he impressively dispatched Otto Wallin, observers lauded his return to dominant form. The bout underscored Joshua’s resurgence as a powerful force in the ring, signaling a promising turn in his career.
Following this remarkable victory, Bellew weighed in on Joshua’s future, contemplating the landscape post the Uysk-Fury fight on February 17th. He emphasized the abundance of significant matchups awaiting Joshua and boldly pitched the idea of a highly anticipated showdown against Ngannou, a former UFC champion.
Ngannou’s remarkable performance against Tyson Fury, despite a narrow split decision loss, earned him recognition from the WBC, elevating his status in the boxing world. While the prospect of a Joshua-Ngannou bout tantalizes fans, the likelihood leans towards Joshua pursuing a world title opportunity in the near future.
