Ngannou Issues Warning to Joshua 'Wake Up in the White Room'

In a stern warning ahead of their upcoming boxing match in Saudi Arabia, former UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou has cautioned Anthony Joshua that he might “wake up in the white room” after their clash on March 8.

Ngannou, who made his boxing debut against Tyson Fury in Riyadh, emphasized the power in the heavyweight division and urged Joshua to be cautious. Backstage at the press conference, Ngannou stated, “If I catch him, then he’s going to sleep. This is the heavyweight division, and everyone is quite strong. Keep your chin away and fight smart.”

The Cameroonian fighter stressed the unpredictability of the sport, emphasizing the need for strategic awareness rather than underestimating opponents. Despite being touted as the hardest puncher, Ngannou acknowledged the challenges in connecting with skilled opponents.

Joshua, coming off a victory against Otto Wallin in December, faces Ngannou in what promises to be a high-stakes showdown in Riyadh. The unexpected matchup diverted from the initial plan of an IBF title eliminator for Joshua, adding intrigue to the heavyweight landscape.

As Fury defends his WBC title against Oleksandr Usyk on February 17, the winner of that bout will become the first undisputed heavyweight champion since 2000. The victor of Joshua vs Ngannou eyes a potential opportunity against Fury or Usyk in the quest for heavyweight supremacy.
