Video: Anthony Joshua vs. Francis Ngannou final pre-fight press conference

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia – Anthony Joshua and Francis Ngannou will get a final chance to talk up their boxing match at Wednesday’s pre-fight press conference.

Joshua will serve as the second opponent inside the ring for former UFC heavyweight champion Ngannou following his memorable debut loss against Tyson Fury in October. The build up to the encounter, which takes place Friday at Kingdom Arena (pay-per-view), has been much more respectful than the Fury fight, but perhaps that will chance as the hours wind down.

Both fighters, as well as Nick Ball, Rey Vargas, Joseph Parker, Zhilei Zhang, Frank Warren and Eddie Hearn, will be in attendance for the pre-fight press conference, which begins at 11 a.m. ET/8 a.m. PT.

MMA Junkie will also provide on-site coverage of the press conference and the rest of Joshua vs. Ngannou fight week.
