Joshua vs Ngannou LIVE: UK start time, stream, and full card | Boxing | Sport

Anthony Joshua will face Francis Ngannou on Friday night, a former UFC Heavyweight Champion that has since transitioned to boxing. Ngannou fought Tyson Fury in his first ever boxing fight last year, and even managed to knock down the six-foot-nine heavyweight before losing to a split decision.

The big fight is upon us, as Ngannou looks to secure his first one against an established heavyweight boxer while Joshua is keen to better Fury’s performance and potentially set up a future all-British bout.

Joshua is 27-3 heading into the fight, losing twice to Oleksandr Usyk after his shock defeat against Andy Ruiz Jr, despite the Mexican fighter being priced at 33/1 to win the contest. Joshua won the rematch to restore his pride, but although he’s favourite to beat Ngannou, he’ll be aware that he is prone to a shock result.

Ngannou may be 0-1 in boxing, but many feel he deserved to beat Fury and fans contested the judges scorecard. The Cameroonian fighter does have the power though, with a 17-3 MMA record and 12 total knockouts.
