British heavyweight Anthony Joshua will be hoping to continue his winning streak when he takes on Francis Ngannou in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, today. The two-time world champion has rebuilt his career with three straight victories over the past 11 months, but now he comes up against the former UFC champion, who has little to lose. Ngannou made his boxing debut against Tyson Fury in October, sensationally dropping the WBC World Heavyweight champion in a non-title bout before losing on a split decision.

The fight program is underway.

Other upcoming fights include Joseph Parker taking on Zhilei Zhang, Rey Vargas will fight Nick Ball for the WBC featherweight title, and Israil Madrimov will face Magomed Kurbanov for the WBA super-welterweight title fight.

Meanwhile, Justis Huni beats Kevin Lerena via unanimous decision, edging it 96-94 96-94 98-92 on the cards after surviving a huge scare in the final round.
