In recent months, talk of a crossover fight involving Ngannou has resurfaced.

The MMA fighter’s style largely consists of fan-friendly standing action and he has a highlight reel consisting of several eye-catching knockouts.

Therefore, some see it as plausible that Ngannou could make the transition to boxing, his first love.

Joshua has held three of boxing's four major world titles and now must fight to win them back from Oleksandr Usyk, live on talkSPORT on August 20.

Joshua has held three of boxing’s four major world titles and now must fight to win them back from Oleksandr Usyk, live on talkSPORT on August 20.

Asked about the possibility of facing AJ or Tyson Fury one day, the UFC champion previously said: “It’s in the future, it’s somewhere, definitely.

“I’m going to box. I have to box in my career.

“My main dream has always been the noble art and even though I have strayed into MMA, which I love, I still have to achieve something in boxing.”

In 2020, it was announced that AJ and Fury would feature in the latest edition of the EA SPORTS UFC video game – UFC 4.

Lo and behold, a fan simulated a fight between Joshua and Ngannou in the octagon.

The fantasy fight begins with both men having some success in the first round.

However, things quickly become more one-sided in the second, as shown by Ngannou’s advantage inside the octagon.

AJ is knocked out in the second round and the UFC champion retains his title.
