Knock Out! by godisgr8(m): 12:27pm On Mar 10
It was meant to be a tight fight.

The world of boxing fans was divided between the two fighters.

Anthony Joshua is a well-known heavy weight boxer that has proven his mettle in the ring.

Ngannou on the other hand was coming into his second boxing fight ever, but had ruled the world of MMA fighting.

They both looked physically fit and ready to tear each other apart.

Alas, on the night of the much anticipated fight, one fighter was standing and the other was flat on the canvas.

What happened? What went wrong? How did Joshua achieve such boxing fit in just the second round? I mean, this was the same Ngannou that took Tyson Fury to the limits. The same one that many believed was cheated out of the victory he well deserved against Fury.

The same Ngannou that had defeated many opponents in the MMA arena.

You see, sometimes, life does not always play out the way we plan. Life sometimes has it's intrigues. Life sometimes does what it wants.

Yes, it was Anthony's night, but it could have gone the other way.

By and large, the lesson is that no matter where you find yourself and in whatever situation, always be prepared to fight. You may not win, but make sure you give your best. Make sure that even when you lose, it wasn't because you performed below par. Let it be that when you look at yourself in the mirror, you can be proud of yourself and not ashamed.

Life may knock you down and out, but when you get back up on your feet, be ready to go again, because the last fight that ended in defeat has taught you a lesson and you bring the knowledge with you into the next fight.
