Anthony Joshua faces Francis Ngannou in Saudi Arabia on Friday night, in a non-title bout billed as 'Knockout Chaos'.

Joshua is coming off the back of a five-round victory against Swedish fighter Otto Wallin, who he outclassed in a dominant display. Ngannou on the other hand is coming off the back of his first ever boxing match, which was against Tyson Fury.

Ngannou gave Fury a serious challenge, and despite losing via split decision, many fans were left feeling like the Cameroonian-Frenchman actually deserved to win the bout. Later, the 37-year-old said he thought he had been "robbed" of a victory.

The pair faced off at a press conference on Wednesday, March 6, where Ngannou clashed with Fury who was sat in the crowd with father John. Ngannou said Fury should "respect the fact that boxing was protecting" him, and that without that he is "nothing".
