Eddie Hearn reacts to Anthony Joshua dismantling Francis Ngannou inside two rounds

Eddie Hearn was over the moon following his client, Anthony Joshua’s, stunning performance against Francis Ngannou on Mar. 8.

The pair of heavyweight boxers went head-to-head in the Knockout Chaos event held in Saudi Arabia. The winner of the much-anticipated clash is scheduled to face the winner of Tyson Fury vs. Oleksandr Usyk, which will take place on May 18.

Joshua dominated Ngannou from the outset, dropping him with an accurate right hand in Round 1. ‘AJ’ landed another flush right hand in the second round that floored his opponent once again before landing a massive punch later in the round that knocked ‘The Predator’ out cold.

In the wake of his client’s epic win, the Matchroom Boxing chairman was interviewed by iFL TV, where he said this:

“I expected [Joshua] to win, not necessarily like that and not necessarily so early. That was one of the most unbelievable performances I’ve seen. That knock out goes to every news outlet, that knock out goes to every media outlet, social media account. Anthony Joshua is the baddest man on the planet. And I’m telling you now, he beats everyone in the division.”

He continued:

“You know it! You know it! You know ‘AJ’s’ the best heavyweight in the world. He is back, baby! He’s got all the tools now. The defense, the footwork, the power, the spite.”
