Before the bout, Ngannou teases Anthony Joshua, saying, “You’re not as tough as Fury

Francis Ngannou, a former UFC champion, asserted that Anthony Joshua, unlike Tyson Fury, would not rise again if he were to knock him down.

Joshua and Ngannou are scheduled to face off on Friday, March 8.

Ngannou will only be competing in his second-ever professional boxing match.

But when he met Fury in his debut fight, he came dangerously close to pulling off one of the biggest upsets in heavyweight history.

When he defeated Fury in the third round back in October of last year, it stunned everyone. But in the end, a split decision decided his loss in the fight.

Yes, that is doubtful in my mind. Tyson demonstrated his extreme resiliency. I witnessed him recover from knockdowns like nothing I’ve ever seen.

“With no disrespect intended for AJ, but I believe he’s among the most reluctant people out there.

When asked if Joshua could withstand what Tyson delivered to Fury, Ngannou responded on DAZN, “I don’t think that AJ would take what Tyson did.”
