02/23/2024 - No comments

PPV.COM is back in action, kicking off its 2024 season without the hassle of a subscription, bringing an absolute cracker of a heavyweight fight to the screens of fans in the U.S. and Canada. Anthony Joshua is going toe-to-toe with Francis Ngannou, the MMA heavyweight turned boxing contender, courtesy of the World Boxing Council. This showdown is set for Friday, March 8, starting at the rather civilised time of 1 p.m. ET / 10 a.m. PT, all the way from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Fancy watching? $69.99, but just a click away at PPV.COM | Joshua vs. Ngannou.

For this bout, PPV.COM is rolling out the red carpet with Jim Lampley, a legend in the commentary box, teaming up with Kevin Iole, a top-notch combat sports scribbler, for a live natter with the viewers. Lampley will also be spilling all the beans during fight week on PPV.COM’s digital haunts.

Lampley reckons the Joshua-Ngannou tussle will shed light on whether Ngannou’s upset over Fury was a fluke or if Fury just had an off day. According to him, if Joshua’s got his wits about him and hasn’t skimped on training, he should find Ngannou a walk in the park and prove once and for all that boxing’s a whole different kettle of fish from MMA. But, Ngannou’s not one to be underestimated – the chap’s shown he’s tough as nails. Still, Lampley’s betting on Joshua to come out on top and nick a bit of glory back from Fury, though he’s keeping his options open until he’s had a proper gander at them both in the flesh.
