Joshua vs Ngannou – Best Promo Ever?

Image for Joshua vs Ngannou – Best Promo Ever?

The promo video for the upcoming superfight between Anthony Joshua and Francis Ngannou has dropped and what can we say – it’s amazing. Dubbed ‘Knockout Chaos’, the fight is set to go down from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia on March 8th.

The promo for the upcoming Joshua vs Ngannou fight is epic. It leans on the classic street fighter game, with multiple graphics mixed with real-life shots throughout.

It’ll mark just the second time that Francis Ngannou will have laced up a pair of boxing gloves (professionally), having only competed against Tyson Fury during his career thus far. That fight became shrouded in controversy as Fury walked away with the win despite a razor-close fight which many believed the former UFC heavyweight champion won.

Joshua is returning after a dominant victory over Robert Helenius, who was stopped in the seventh round. The stoppage victory marked the first time that AJ had recorded back-to-back stoppages since 2017. Questions were asked as to whether this meant that the old AJ was back…

The clash of these two giants has equally as big ramifications. Ordinarily, we would have known who the undisputed heavyweight champion is, however, Tyson Fury had to pull out of his scheduled bout with Oleksandr Usyk and the fight has been postponed. The winner of this fight will set themselves up perfectly for the winner of the Fury/Usyk bout, however, if rumours are to be believed, if Francis Ngannou wins, he’ll return to MMA.

Renan Ferreira will be the man who will welcome Ngannou back to the world of mixed martial arts after his 21 second knockout of Ryan Bader this past weekend, however, if Ngannou beats Joshua, the carrot of a huge payday in the world of boxing may be too good to miss out on.

Whether it’s boxing or MMA, Ngannou will clash with Joshua first in a fight that has fans salivating.
