Former UFC champion believes Joshua can beat Ngannou under MMA rules

Demetrious Johnson, former UFC lightweight champion, believes Anthony Joshua can beat Francis Ngannou in an MMA rules bout.

"Francis is not a world-class kickboxer. If we look at all of his fights, he's had a few wins by holds and he's had someone he's moved to the parterre. But if we compare him to someone like Anthony Joshua, who is a highly skilled athlete..... Give me Anthony for six months, we're going to train his takedown defense, his leg kicks, as well as his boxing. If Anthony can master all of that, then he will really have a chance of beating Francis in the octagon," Give me Sport quoted Johnson as saying.
