John Fury had earlier cast doubts about Joshua’s ability to beat Ngannou, giving his size and punching strength during the Cameroonian’s bout with his son, Tyson Fury, last year.

In his response, Joshua noted the shifting grounds of the heavyweight division. “It is land of the giants, isn’t it? The heavyweight division is changing up,” he said.
