Matchroom Boxing CEO Eddie Hearn said he intends to arrange a fight between former world heavyweight boxing champion Anthony Joshua and former UFC champion Francis Ngannou.
I've already talked to Ngannou. Anthony will be back in the ring the first of April, and we could have a fight with Francis in the summer. It would be a huge event.
