In less than a day, Junior dos Santos will arguable face his toughest challenge yet in the. If tomorrow night goes as planned, dos Santos will then try to show dominance in the world of boxing.
During an interview with MMAfighting.com, the Brazilian former UFC heavyweight champion revealed that he plans to knockout Francis Ngannou at UFC Minneapolis. According to dos Santos, he believes he has more skills and that too much power without control is useless.
Dos Santos said,
He has a lot of power. If he connects a good punch on you, you’re out. That’s 100 percent sure. But too much power without the right control is useless. So I’m going to take the best of Ngannou and if he’s not ready to show me his best, he’s going to get knocked out. I’m going to come to knock him out for this fight.
I believe I have more skills than him. I have better boxing. I know he was talking about even fighting in boxing. This could be a good chance for him to have a boxing fight because I’m not going away from the standup game with him. I’m ready to stand up and bang against him. I hope he’s ready for that, too. Because I’m sure the fans will love it. I can knock anyone out in this division and Ngannou is going to be the next guy. I even have enough boxing to beat boxing champions.
If the fight goes as planned, dos Santos confirmed that will try to match up next against Deontay Wilder in a superfight that can most likely happen in the very near future. That’s what dos Santos believes, if he KO’s Ngannou tomorrow night.
I think and I already have this idea in my mind who it could be. It could be Deontay Wilder because everything I see about Deontay, he’s a great champion, he knocks everybody out and he doesn’t run away from a good match,” dos Santos said. “He accepts all the matches. Some of the guys pick fights but this guy is not picking fights. He’s fighting everybody. So I think if we have a good match and we are able to make people want to see that fight and there’s a chance it could happen.
