Anthony Joshua faces Francis Ngannou in a clash of the ages in Saudi Arabia.

Last time out, Joshua defeated Swedish southpaw Otto Wallin in Riyadh. 'The Day of Reckoning' back in December forced Wallin's retirement in round five after being dominated by Joshua.

The Briton's clash against Ngannou will be his fourth non-title bout in a row. Between 2016 and 2022, Joshua fought exclusively in world championship bouts, so it's an unusual position for the Brit to be in.

Despite the fact Ngannou has come over from mixed martial arts and the UFC, he arrived with a bang to the ring. The Cameroonian-French hard-hitter gave Tyson Fury a serious run for his money, and many fans thought the decision to award Fury with the victory was unjustified.

The 37-year-old former UFC man floored Fury with a nasty left hook early on, and proved a difficult task for The Gypsy King in the remainder of the 10-round bout. Ngannou later said that he was 'robbed' by the judges, and will be baying for blood from the boxing gods when he faces Joshua.
