Nigeria-born British boxer Anthony Joshua tipped the scales at 252.4lbs ahead of Friday’s heavyweight showdown against Francis Ngannou, who weighed in almost two stones heavier, OwoSports.com.ng has sourced.

The 34-year-old former two-time world champion was just over a pound heavier than in his last bout against Otto Wallin in December.
Ngannou weighed in at 272.6lbs, slightly above what he was for the fight against Tyson Fury in October, the first boxing contest for the former MMA star.
“Sometimes when you bow your head and make prayers, miracles do happen, that is all I can say – God is working in my favour,” Joshua said following the weigh-in on DAZN Boxing’s YouTube channel.
Joshua added: “Official prediction…? I deliver – I am the postman.”
The winner of Friday’s ‘Knockout Chaos’ headline contest is expected to be in line to face Fury or Oleksandr Usyk, who will finally fight in their undisputed heavyweight bout on May 18 before a rematch takes place later in 2024.
