Robert Garcia Predicts Joshua's Victory, Ngannou Won't Hear Final Bell

Former UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou is gearing up for a different challenge in the boxing ring against Anthony Joshua, according to predictions from renowned trainer Robert Garcia. Ngannou’s debut in boxing saw him face Tyson Fury, securing a close split decision loss after dropping Fury with a powerful left hook in the third round.

Garcia, who trained Joshua for his October 2022 rematch against Oleksandr Usyk, believes Ngannou’s impressive performance against Fury was partly due to Fury’s lack of preparation and underestimation of the opponent. However, Garcia emphasizes that Joshua, the former two-time WBA, WBO, and IBF heavyweight champion, won’t make the same mistake.

“I think Anthony Joshua is always in shape. Anthony’s a very dedicated fighter, I think Anthony will knock Francis out,” Garcia confidently states, predicting a decisive victory for the British boxer.

Ngannou’s rise in the WBC rankings after the Fury bout sets the stage for a showdown with Joshua on March 8th at the Kingdom Arena in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Joshua, known for his dedication and aggressiveness, has undergone several trainer changes but seems to have found his rhythm, including a collaboration with Ben Davison for his recent bout against Otto Wallin.

Garcia highlights the importance of keeping Joshua active, emphasizing the positive impact of increased fight frequency on the British boxer’s performance. The Ngannou fight will mark Joshua’s fourth outing in less than 12 months, showcasing a commitment to staying busy in the ring.

As the date approaches, the boxing world awaits the clash between Joshua and Ngannou, with Garcia’s predictions adding fuel to the anticipation surrounding this high-stakes bout.
