Francis Ngannou’s Trainer Reveals Who Poses the Bigger Threat – Anthony Joshua or Tyson Fury

When it comes to the world of heavyweight boxing, all eyes are on Francis Ngannou. The rising star’s remarkable career continues on March 8 as he faces another modern-day great in only his second fight. But the question on everyone’s mind is, who poses the bigger threat – Anthony Joshua or Tyson Fury?

Ngannou’s Coach, Dewey Cooper, recently sat down with Seconds Out to give us some insider insights on the upcoming matchup. He was asked the million-dollar question – who is more of a threat between Joshua and Fury?

According to Cooper, the answer is not a simple one. He believes that Ngannou’s fight against Fury was a different matchup compared to what he will face against Joshua. “The Dynamics are different. Fury is a highly skilled guy and difficult to match skill and brains and IQ with,” says Cooper.

However, when it comes to Joshua, Cooper sees a different challenge. “Joshua is a stronger guy, he’s more of a threat, he has that power, a strong jab, and an excellent right hand,” he adds. With two Herculean fighters going against each other, it’s no doubt that the matchup will be a sight to see.

But according to Cooper, it’s Ngannou’s mental fortitude that will ultimately lead him to victory. He believes that his grit, will, and desire will be stronger and outdo that of Joshua’s. “Joshua has power, so we have to be very sharp and strong. Those are two things we plan on doing anyway, so it’s just another day at the office for us,” says Cooper confidently.

The winner of this fight is said to be in line to face the winner of Fury’s historic undisputed fight against Oleksandr Usyk on February 17. With so much at stake, it’s safe to say that Ngannou will be giving it his all in the ring.

Ngannou’s journey to the top has been nothing short of remarkable. From a humble beginning in Cameroon, he has risen to become one of the most feared fighters in the world. And his fight against Fury only solidified his status as a force to be reckoned with.

In their matchup, Ngannou shocked the world – not with a win, but with his impressive performance. He even managed to knock down Fury in the third round, showing that he is a true threat in the heavyweight division.

But with Joshua, things may be different. The two fighters have a similar build and strength, making it a more evenly matched fight. As Cooper puts it, “aesthetically it’s gunna look like heavyweight boxing is supposed to look.”

As the date for the fight draws closer, all eyes will be on Ngannou and Joshua. With both fighters known for their knockout power, it’s anyone’s game. But one thing is for sure; Ngannou will be giving it his all to secure his spot as the undisputed champion.

In conclusion, it’s clear that Ngannou’s trainer sees Joshua as the bigger threat in this matchup. But with Ngannou’s mental fortitude and determination, he is ready to take on any challenge that comes his way.
