After Tyson Fury’s win against Braun Strowman at WWE Crown Jewel last month, he expressed interest in fighting the UFC champion Stipe Miocic and top contender Francis Ngannou.
“Who’s the heavyweight champion of the world in the UFC? The American-Croatian, Stipe Miocic. I’ll fight him in a heartbeat, no problem, or Francis Ngannou. Any of the heavyweights they’ve got, I’m not afraid of any of them. I’m the ‘Gypsy King’. I’m a boxer, but I’m one badass motherf****r.” Fury had said following his victory at crown jewel.
Francis Ngannou recently met former heavyweight champion of the world Mike Tyson where the UFC heavyweight was seen taking boxing lessons from Tyson.

“Spoke with Mike Tyson and he agreed to train me for when I fight @Tyson_Fury in the Ring. Don’t be scared Fury. You called me out and now you’ll have to live with it. #WakandaForever #UNCROWNEDKING,” Ngannou wrote.
It didn’t take long for Tyson Fury to respond and he made it clear that after he is done with boxing, he is coming for all the other UFC heavyweights.
