Joshua Warned About Ngannou's Power As The Predator 'Destroys' Punch Machine - 'Joshua Is Finished'

Francis Ngannou has warned Anthony Joshua as he showed off his power on a boxing punch machine. 

Ngannou is arguably one of the hardest hitters in combat sports. According to the Guinness Book of World Records, he recorded the hardest ever punch. In 2018, he tested his power against the PowerKube machine. The machine tests a fighter’s force, speed, and accuracy. Ngannou delivered an overhand right, and the results were staggering. 

Ngannou’s Power

His right hand recorded a power punch of 129,161 units, while he achieved a reading of 122,000 for his uppercut. His speed was there for all to see, as he registered 51,064 foot-pounds per second. This was the same power as a family wagon’s horsepower. Before his boxing debut against Tyson Fury, Frank Warren warned the public over Ngannou’s power. He would then drop Fury in the third round. Dana White also spoke about Ngannou’s power before his eventual departure from the UFC. 

“He’s going to have to throw bombs and put Tyson out of his stride. One thing that’s for sure is that if Ngannou catches him then he’ll hurt him. We know he’s a massive puncher because he’s in the Guiness Book Of Records for throwing the hardest punch. He is a big puncher and as Daniel Dubois showed in his fight with Oleksandr Usyk a couple of weeks ago, a big punch can change a fight dramatically. Tyson has got to be at the top of his game and watch out for this,” Warren said 

“Francis Ngannou has the world record for the most powerful punch, his punch is the equivalent to 96 horsepower which is equal to getting hit by a Ford Escort going as fast as it can. And it’s more powerful than a 12-pound sledgehammer swung full force from overhead. Holy sh*t,” White stated

Ngannou’s Intent

Heading into the Joshua fight, Ngannou spoke of his desire to test the Brit’s chin. He doubted whether the Brit could take a shot, especially since he had floored Fury. Unlike Joshua, who has been stopped, Fury has never been nailed to the canvas. The Gypsy King went into the ring with arguably the most feared puncher in the division three times in the form of Deontay Wilder. That is why Ngannou has no doubt he can trouble AJ. 

“Yes, I heard that he doesn’t have a chin, I don’t know if it’s true or not. We’re going to find out. I hope I have the opportunity to test that out. In the fight you try to hit somebody in the chin or wherever you can hit him. “Maybe I will do something that nobody has done before and I really think I have the tools to do that, starting with a win against AJ,” Ngannou stated 

So far, he is living up to his word. The following footage shows Ngannou scoring 999 on a Gym Shark punch machine with a right hand. The impressive thing about the clip was the lack of effort Ngannou showed in releasing his punch.
