Coming up on March 8th, from the Kingdom Arena in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, former two-time heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua is scheduled to square off against former UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou live on DAZN PPV or PPV.com.

Ngannou had his professional boxing debut last October, when he faced WBC and lineal world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury in a 10 round non-title bout. To the surprise of many, Ngannout put forth a terrific performance against Fury where he even managed to drop him with a beautifully timed counter in round 3. At the end of 10 rounds, Fury escaped with a razor thin split decision victory. Many observers, however, believed that Ngannou had done enough to deserve the victory.

On the other side, Joshua is a former two-time unified heavyweight champion, and since losing his rematch against Oleksandr Usyk back in 2022, AJ has been on the comeback trail where he has been especially active in a day and age where top heavyweights typically only fight once or twice a year. Joshua fought three times last year, and all of a sudden he is on a 3 fight winning streak. It started last April when AJ was awarded a 12 round unanimous decision against Jermaine Franklin. Then in August Joshua stopped Robert Helenius in round 7. And then of course back in December, in the main event fight on the Boxing Day of Reckoning, Joshua outclassed Otto Wallin, and Otto’s corner stopped the fight after round 5 concluded.

So who will win the upcoming heavyweight boxing event between Anthony Joshua and Francis Ngannou?

This edition of Rummy’s Corner will attempt to answer that question and also provide a quick preview of the upcoming heavyweight contest on March 8 between Anthony Joshua and Francis Ngannou. Please watch and enjoy the video for one man’s opinion. This is Rummy’s Corner (produced and narrated by Geoffrey Ciani).
