Anthony Joshua’s Knockout of Francis Ngannou: A Game-Changer in Heavyweight Boxing

The potential turning point in Anthony Joshua’s career could be his knockout victory over Francis Ngannou. This comes as the WBC announced that Joshua, an Olympic gold medalist, might contend against the winner of the Tyson Fury versus Oleksandr Usyk match in May. Fury, 35, and Usyk, 37, are set to compete in Riyadh on May 18 to determine the undisputed world heavyweight champion after nearly a quarter of a century.

Although Fury has repeatedly mentioned a rematch with ‘The Cat’, the WBC hinted at prioritizing a showdown between the victor and Joshua, 34, shortly after his impressive win over former UFC champion Ngannou in just two rounds.

The conversation surrounding a potential showdown between Joshua and Fury has shifted significantly following Joshua’s recent string of knockout victories. While Joshua seems to have regained his formidable form, Fury’s reputation took a hit after a lackluster and controversial points victory over Ngannou.Golden State Warriors’ Dominance Over Bucks and Potential Playoff Showdown with Clippers: A Resurgence and the Blake Griffin Factor

Mauricio Sulaiman acknowledged this shift and commended Joshua for his stellar performance, stating, “It was unbelievable. He looked like a champion of the world – tremendous, powerful, precise and he made a statement. I am very proud and happy for him. That is how the world is, they judge you by your last performance, and now he is a power force and everybody is claiming he is the best heavyweight in the world. Last year they were saying he was washed up. Now, everyone is saying Fury is all washed up, but we will see on May 18.”Negotiating Lautaro Martinez’s Future: Inter’s Contract Talks Heat UpLos Angeles Clippers’ G League Team Relocates and Rebrands as San Diego Clippers: A Homecoming in Oceanside
