In this new interview, Joshua explains, “A good scrap would be, I think the guy from Congo [Francis Ngannou], he just lost recently. Big unit, that would be a good scrap. Then you’ve got Jon Jones, that would be a good scrap.”

“I’d have to obviously have a couple warm up fights, because you have to learn the submissions and stuff, but a fight’s a fight at the end of the day.”
