Cameroonian mixed martial arts fighter, Francis Ngannou has come out to say that Anthony Joshua would not be able to recover from a similar punch he landed to floor Tyson Fury.

He recently had his say ahead of their upcoming heavyweight clash in Saudi Arabia, and fans have been reacting.

According to him, any similar blow to Joshua would see him claim the win vs Anthony Joshua, and it only took amazing resilience for Fury to get back up.

Francis added that he always knew knocking Fury down was nothing to be too excited about before the fight.

His words, “Yeah, I have a doubt about that. Tyson showed that he’s very resilient. I saw him come back from knockdowns like you wouldn’t believe.

So I think he’s probably one of the most resistant people out there, and that’s not a disrespect to AJ.

I don’t believe that AJ would take what Tyson did.

Even going into the fight, I knew that even if I knocked him down, I would not get excited.

That would not mean anything because he always comes back.”


Anthony Joshua, OBE (born 15 October 1989) is a British professional boxer who is a two-time unified heavyweight champion, having held the WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, and IBO titles since December 2019 and previously between 2016 and June 2019. At regional level, he held the British and Commonwealth heavyweight titles from 2014 to 2016.

Anthony Oluwafemi Olaseni Joshua was born on 15 October 1989 in Watford, Hertfordshire, the son of Yeta and Robert Joshua. His mother is Nigerian, while his father is of Nigerian and Irish ancestry. Joshua’s Nigerian background can be specifically traced back to the Yoruba people, amongst whom he is of aristocratic rank.

His cousin, Ben Ileyemi, is also a professional boxer. The pair made their professional debuts together in 2013. Joshua spent some of his early years in Nigeria as a boarding school student at Mayflower School in Ikenne.

Following his parents’ divorce when he was 12, he returned to the UK halfway through Year Seven to join Kings Langley Secondary School. Growing up on the Meriden Estate in Garston, Hertfordshire, he was called “Femi” by his friends and former teachers, due to his middle name, Oluwafemi. He excelled at football and athletics and broke his school’s Year Nine 100 m record with a time of 11.6 seconds.
