Francis Ngannou will make his Professional Fighters League debut against the winner of Saturday’s bout between Ryan Bader and Renan Ferreira.

The 37-year-old joined the PFL last year but is set to box Britain’s Anthony Joshua in Riyadh on 8 March. Ngannou lost narrowly to Tyson Fury on his boxing debut in October.

Professional Fighters League chief Peter Murray told BBC Sport earlier this month Ngannou’s debut in the MMA promotion would likely be “in the second half of the year”.
