Francis Ngannou taunts Anthony Joshua ahead of fight

 Former UFC champion, Francis Ngannou, has claimed Anthony Joshua will not get back up if he knocks him down as he did to Tyson Fury.

Ngannou is billed to fight Joshua on Friday, March 8.

It will only be Ngannou’s second professional boxing bout ever.

However, he almost recorded one of the biggest upsets in heavyweight history when he faced Fury in his first.

Last October, he shocked the world when he dropped Fury in the third round. But he eventually lost the bout in a split decision.

“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 [sic] person out there, and that’s not a disrespect to AJ.

“I don’t believe that AJ would take what Tyson did,” Ngannou said on DAZN when asked if Joshua could take what he dished out to Fury.
