Super-fight could be announced on Joshua vs Ngannou undercard as new date confirmed, it's happening sooner

An enormous fight could be added to the undercard of Anthony Joshua vs. Francis Ngannou as the event has a new date.

A blockbuster ten-round boxing match between heavyweight stars Joshua and Ngannou is a done deal for Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

'AJ' had been in line to face long-time rival Deontay Wilder, but the American's defeat to Joseph Parker on the 'Day of Reckoning' card scuppered plans.

Joshua will now take on the former UFC heavyweight champion, who gave Tyson Fury a scare in their showdown last year.

The British fighter has reacted to the fight being signed as he took to social media and in doing so, he confirmed a new date for the event.

He posted the famous 'ah sh*t, here we go again' meme, accompanied with a date of March 8, 2024.

Before the news broke, Ngannou tweeted: "Making big moves in the new year. 2024 is going to be," accompanied with fire emojis.

And there's fresh information regarding the potential undercard as 'The Bronze Bomber' could feature on the bill despite suffering a defeat to Parker.

A monstrous clash between Wilder and Zhilei Zhang could act as the co-main event, or they could appear in separate fights.

Chinese superstar Zhang has lost just one fight in his professional career and scored a gigantic win over Joe Joyce in his last appearance.

He's on a two-fight winning streak as he boasts two wins over Joyce following his controversial defeat to top contender Filip Hrgovic.

The March 8 card is yet another big night of boxing in Saudi Arabia following the recent Fury vs. Ngannou and 'Day of Reckoning' card.

The undisputed bout between Fury and Oleksandr Usyk is also scheduled to take place in the Middle East.

Joshua vs. Ngannou is expected to be another huge night of fights and is just over two months away.
