Ngannou's Knockout Power vs. Joshua's Experience: Can the Underdog Shock the World?

In a clash set to rock Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, former UFC champion Francis Ngannou is gearing up to face the more experienced former two-time heavyweight champion, Anthony Joshua, on March 8th. While Joshua holds a significant advantage in experience with a record of 27-3, Ngannou’s reputation for devastating punching power brings an element of unpredictability to the matchup.

Ngannou, despite being 0-1 as a boxer, is not to be underestimated, as highlighted by boxing analyst Spencer Oliver. Stylistically, Ngannou seems to relish the challenge against Joshua, a fighter who tends to come forward and engage in the pocket. Unlike the elusive Tyson Fury, Joshua’s straightforward approach may play into Ngannou’s strengths, making this clash a compelling spectacle.


One key factor is Ngannou’s knockout power, a potent weapon that has proven effective in his previous encounters. As Spencer Oliver notes, Ngannou’s timing compensates for his lack of speed, presenting a unique challenge for Joshua. The question lingers: Can Joshua handle the explosive power that Ngannou brings to the table?

The fight strategy for Joshua becomes crucial, especially considering Ngannou’s ability to counter with powerful left hooks. A cautious approach is expected from Joshua, who cannot afford to fight Ngannou the way he did against the light-hitting Otto Wallin. Ngannou’s track record, including dropping Tyson Fury in a previous bout, adds an extra layer of intrigue to the matchup.

Ngannou’s confidence is evident as he asserts that he has studied Joshua’s resilience compared to Fury’s ability to weather big shots. This confidence, combined with Ngannou’s proven ability to capitalize on timing, sets the stage for a potentially explosive encounter. As the fight date approaches, all eyes will be on whether Joshua can weather the storm of Ngannou’s power or if the underdog will indeed shock the world.
