Francis Ngannou continues his quest for glory in professional boxing when he takes on two-time world champion Anthony Joshua in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia next week.

The Cameroon star will step into the boxing ring for just a second time, but comes into the fight with huge credit in the bank from his display against WBC heavyweight title holder Tyson Fury last year. The 37-year-old lost to the "Gypsy King" on a controversial points decision, despite having his man down in the third round.

But Ngannou is confident that he can do the job inside the distance this time, as he prepares to do battle with 2012 Olympic gold medalist Joshua. Since losing his three world championship belts in his two bouts with Oleksandr Usyk, AJ has bounced back with three consecutive victories, claiming an impressive fifth round stoppage of Otto Wallin on the "Day of Reckoning" bill in Riyadh back in December.

With Fury facing Usyk in May for the undisputed heavyweight crown, it was hoped that Joshua's next contest would be against long-time rival Deontay Wilder, but following the American's shock defeat to Joseph Parker, a match-up with newly-turned boxer Ngannou has quickly been arranged.

Saudi royal adviser and the Chairman of General Authority for Entertainment Turki Alalshikh has came up with the funds to stage the massive event, which has been billed with the title "Knockout Chaos".

The card is stacked with some other exciting contests, with fellow heavyweight contender Parker facing Chinese star Zhilei Zhang, Rey Vargas and Brit Nick Ball fight for the Vargas' WBC featherweight title and Israil Madrimov takes on Magomed Kurbanov for the vacant WBA super welterweight belt.

Alalshikh has vowed that the winner of the bout will go on to share the ring with the victor of Fury and Usyk's highly anticipated fight, so with so much on the line, we can expect fireworks in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia next week.

Here are all the key details ahead of Joshua's massive showdown with former UFC star Ngannou in just seven days time.
