Boxing's Big Bang: Joshua vs. Ngannou Date Locked, Stellar Undercard Announced!

The showdown's on! Anthony Joshua, former heavyweight champ, and Francis Ngannou, ex-UFC kingpin, are locking horns. Mark your calendars for March 8, 2024 – it's all going down at the Kingdom Arena, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

Here's the undercard lineup for this sizzler of an evening:

Roman Fury - TBA

Jack McGann - TBA

Justis Huni - TBA

Ziyad Almaayouf - TBA

Mark Chamberlain throws down with Gavin Gwynne.

Ray Vargas and Nick Ball will fight for the WBC featherweight crown (up to 57.1 kg).

Heavy hitters Zhilei Zhang and Joseph Parker vie for the WBO interim heavyweight title (over 90.7 kg).

2023 was a rollercoaster for Joshua – a trio of battles, clinching wins with a judge's nod, a knockout, and making his rival's corner throw in the towel. Ngannou, stepping into pro boxing just last year, faced a setback against Tyson Fury, losing on points but not before flooring Fury with a knockdown. Get ready for a rumble!
