Next Opponent for Anthony Joshua Revealed With Riyadh Set to Host

Day of Reckoning” was a brilliant event that provided us with a stacked card, and on February 17, we will see Tyson Fury vs. Oleksandr Usyk for the undisputed heavyweight championship. On January 5, Eddie Hearn announced the next major heavyweight contest for Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. The announcement confirmed Anthony Joshua will take on Francis Ngannou, who lost via split decision to Tyson Fury.

Joshua vs. Ngannou: What We Know So Far

Earlier this week, in an interview with Kugan Cassius from IFLTV, Hearn revealed three potential opponents for AJ. One of those options being ex-UFC star Ngannou. A fight between Joshua and the Cameroon-born fighter – was described by the Matchroom Sport chairman  as “Absolutely Colossal.” That possible match-up has become a reality, with Hearn announcing the fight via his X page.

He describes it as a “done deal,” with the fight set for Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. He also confirmed the opening press conference will take place in London on January 15, with full details dropping soon, including the fight date and undercard.

Later on Friday night, our insider Dan Rafael confirmed and reported on his substack that fight date is set for Friday night March 8 in Riyadh, where Joshua just stopped Otto Wallin on December 23. Rafael further reported that just like the Fury fight in October, Ngannou has agreed to a 10 round boxing match with Joshua.

What Can We Expect From Joshua vs. Ngannou

Based on fight cards in Saudi Arabia, we can expect another stacked night of quality boxing. As Dan Rafael revealed before “Day of Reckoning,” AJ and Deontay Wilder had agreed to all terms on a two-fight deal, contingent on neither losing – with Joseph Parker subsequently dominating Wilder – Hearn has since said: “The fights dead.”

The first fight between AJ and “The Bronze Bomber” was set for March 9, but as Rafael reported, it will now be a night earlier for Joshua vs. Ngannou.
