Anthony Joshua vs Francis Ngannou: Weigh-in results as ex UFC champ comes in 20lbs heavier

Former UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou has weighed in 20lbs heavier than Anthony Joshua ahead of their much-anticipated clash in Saudi Arabia.

Ngannou already shocked the boxing world once when taking Tyson Fury to the limit in his professional boxing debut.

The MMA fighter showed boxing class as he dropped the lineal heavyweight champion during the fight.

Despite ultimately losing to Fury on the scorecards, Ngannou is back for another shot at yet another top heavyweight.

On this occasion, the man standing in the opposite corner is former heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua.

The British boxing star is forging his path towards another world title opportunity and victory over Ngannou will undoubtedly take him a step closer.
