Anthony Joshua V. Francis Ngannou boxing bout: Latest updates

The Anthony Joshua V. Francis Ngannou heavyweight boxing clash is one of the most talked about topics at the moment. Here are latest updates on the fight which will take place on Friday, March 8, 2024.


Francis Ngannou is more renowned as a mixed martial artist and is now expected to make a highly-anticipated return to MMA after his boxing bout against Anthony Joshua.

Since his victory over Ciryl Gane at UFC 270 in January 2022, “The Predator” has been absent from mixed martial arts competitions. Last year, it was announced that Ngannou would be leaving the UFC due to a prolonged absence caused by a knee injury.

Currently, Ngannou is preparing for his second professional boxing match against Anthony Joshua, the former unified heavyweight champion. Despite his boxing commitments, Ngannou remains committed to his new team in the Professional Fighters League (PFL).

In the meantime, a significant heavyweight bout between Renan Ferriera and Ryan Bader is set to take place, with Ngannou announced as the opponent for the winner of this matchup in his promotional debut with the PFL.


Nigeria and Cameroon are sporting rivals. Already, both countries have faced off at the recently concluded Africa Cup of Nations, while another football clash beckons with the women’s Olympic games qualifier before Joshua and Ngannou fight.

Ngannou’s boxing match against Joshua has generated considerable attention, especially given the African heritage of both fighters. Scheduled for March 8, 2024, this bout has garnered widespread interest across social media platforms.

In anticipation of the fight, Joshua took to social media to express his gratitude to his supporters and provide insights into his training regimen.
