Joshua dropped Ngannou in round one with a clean right hand – when the ex-UFC champion went southpaw – before doing the same in round two. After Ngannou beat the referee’s count following the second knockdown, Joshua knocked the Cameroonian out cold with his very next punch, another right cross.

With the win, “AJ” made it back-to-back wins under Ben Davison, a former coach of Fury. With Davison in his corner, 34-year-old Joshua stopped Otto Wallin in five rounds in December.

Like that win over Wallin, and Ngannou’s boxing debut against Fury in October, Joshua’s victory took place in Riyadh. Billed as “Knockout Chaos”, Friday’s event was the latest fight card put on by Turki Al-Sheikh in Saudi Arabia.

“It is what it is,” said Joshua, a former two-time unified champion. “We welcomed [Ngannou to boxing], he’s a great champion. It doesn’t take away from his capability. He can come again, I told him he can stay in boxing. It’s up to him.
