Anthony Joshua Secures Second-Round Knockout Victory Against Francis Ngannou

Anthony Joshua won his fourth fight in a row, knocking out Cameroonian boxer Francis Ngannou in the second round of the “Knockout Chaos” card in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

After defeating Jermaine Franklin in April and Robert Helenius with a seventh-round knockout in August, Joshua cruised to a fifth-round technical knockout victory over Otto Wallin in December, who was expected to be a formidable opponent, especially given his southpaw stance.

Joshua has now knocked out two boxers who went the distance with Tyson Fury: Wallin and Ngannou.

Ngannou stunned fans when he knocked Fury down in their fight last year, and supporters hoped he could repeat the feat against Joshua.

Joshua, on the other hand, silenced the skeptics by outboxing Ngannou throughout the two rounds and making the statement he promised with a knockout win in just five minutes of the fight.

After being knocked out, the Cameroonian-born boxer required medical attention and received oxygen in the ring’s corner before standing up again.

Joshua stated in the post-match press conference that he is ready to face the winner of Fury versus Usyk for a shot at the world heavyweight titles.
