Francis Ngannou Claims Victim of a Pre-Fight Trick Leading to Anthony Joshua KO

In the aftermath of his brutal knockout loss to Anthony Joshua, Francis Ngannou has come forward with startling revelations, suggesting that he was the victim of a pre-fight ‘trickery’ that may have contributed to his defeat.

Ngannou, a former UFC champion, found himself knocked out cold in the second round of his latest boxing bout with Joshua on March 8 in Saudi Arabia. It was a devastating blow for the Cameroon star, who was visibly outclassed in just his second appearance in the squared circle.

In a candid admission since the fight, Ngannou disclosed that he believed he was intentionally brought to the arena hours earlier than necessary, leaving him feeling fatigued and disoriented before the bout even began. Speaking on the MMA Hour, Ngannou recounted his experience, revealing how he was misled about the timing of the fight and left waiting for hours in the locker room, unaware of the impact it would have on his performance.

However, despite his frustrations, Ngannou remained adamant about not making excuses for his loss, taking full responsibility for the outcome. This display of accountability speaks to Ngannou’s character and integrity as a fighter, even in the face of adversity.

Looking ahead, Ngannou faces a crossroads in his career. Having lost his ranking in the top ten of the WBC heavyweight rankings, the 38-year-old must now contemplate his next move in the sport. While options such as facing Deontay Wilder or Dillian Whyte in boxing remain on the table, Ngannou may also consider prioritizing a return to MMA, where he has yet to compete under his new deal with the Professional Fighters League (PFL).

Regardless of his decision, Ngannou’s resilience and determination will undoubtedly fuel his comeback journey, as he seeks redemption and strives to reclaim his status as a force to be reckoned with in combat sports.
