Francis Ngannou spoke on Monday on the possibility of facing Tyson Fury in a spectacular boxing match. The UFC heavyweight king of MMA is keen to strike a deal with the British boxer.
Francis Ngannou became the UFC heavyweight champion after his stunning victory over Stipe Miocic on March 28 in Las Vegas. Star fighter of the North American organization, the Cameroonian has also confirmed his status as a star of world sport and would see himself taking the opportunity to face Tyson Fury in a boxing match. Asked about the possibility of taking place in a boxing ring against the linear heavyweight champion, Ngannou wants to be confident.
“Yes. Of course. Last year, we had already heated up on the networks. It is something that will be done, assured the king of the heavyweights of the UFC in an interview for the newspaper L ‘ Team. How do you explain it? That would be great, great! I have a belief that this will happen. I will find a way to make it happen. We both have a little story. And Mike Tyson told me that he would be in my corner if this fight goes ahead. “
The power of Ngannou against the mastery of Fury
Close to “Iron Mike”, Francis Ngannou thus hopes to speak about his qualities as a puncher and his devastating right to bring down the current WBC heavyweight champion. But beware, facing the “Gypsy King”, the power of the UFC champion should not be enough as the Briton seems elusive in a ring.
Floyd Mayweather’s victory over Conor McGregor in the previous fight between a boxing star and another MMA outcome had also confirmed that it was difficult to go from the octagon to a classic ring. But after having subjected the UFC to the force of his fists, Francis Ngannou intends to do the same with Tyson Fury.
