Ngannou made a strong fight, but he was unable to get close to the former heavyweight champion as Joshua came out punching. Three times during the fight, Joshua finally knocked down Ngannou. The first time was with 40 seconds remaining in the opening round when the British-Nigerian delivered a strong right shot to the Cameroonian fighter's chin. Ngannou stood back up after giving the referee a count of eight. When he stands up after eight seconds following the second knockdown in round two, the same thing occurs. But after the bell ringing to indicate the conclusion of the fight and Joshua's victory sounds and the third knockdown straight down and he can no longer get up without oxygen and medical attention.
