Joshua: “God is good, life is good, no complaining. All will be revealed, straight up war and relentlessness. That’s what everyone is here for, a good fight. We’re not looking past this fight, this is my main focus. The incentives are just to win, to focus on my gameplan. That’s what I have to do.”

Ngannou: “I think I haven’t shocked the world yet. It takes two to tango thanks to AJ for making this happen. I’m still in the factory building, training and learning. When we get in the ring, that’s when you know the fight and when there is a reaction in front the fight can be very different. When there is no reaction, it can also be different.”
