In a heavyweight showdown that captured the attention of boxing fans worldwide, Anthony Joshua secured a commanding victory over Francis Ngannou in Saudi Arabia on March 9, marking a significant resurgence in his career.

The highly anticipated bout saw Joshua, a two-time former unified world heavyweight champion, assert his dominance early on by sending Ngannou to the canvas in the opening round. The British fighter continued his onslaught in the second round, delivering two more knockdowns before sealing the win with a decisive blow that left Ngannou in need of medical attention.

Despite Ngannou's impressive background as a former UFC heavyweight champion, this fight only marked his second professional boxing match. His previous performance in a split decision loss to WBC champion Tyson Fury last October had hinted at his potential in the boxing world.

Following Joshua's triumphant victory, promoter Eddie Hearn wasted no time in calling for a showdown between Joshua and the winner of Fury's upcoming unification match against Oleksandr Usyk. Usyk, who has previously defeated Joshua, will face Fury in May to determine the undisputed heavyweight champion.

With the heavyweight division now buzzing with excitement, all eyes are on the potential matchups that could unfold as a result of Joshua's victory. His sights are firmly set on a clash with Fury, setting the stage for what promises to be a thrilling contest in the world of boxing.

As Ngannou reflects on his defeat and Fury and Usyk prepare for their monumental battle, the anticipation for the future of heavyweight boxing has reached a fever pitch, with fans eagerly awaiting the next chapter in this exhilarating sport.
