The hottest boxing match between Tyson Fury and Francis Ngannou is now rumored to be taking place in the near future. Recently Tyson Fury fought against Dillian Whyte in his last boxing match. After the fight, Tyson Fury announced that he would be considering retiring from the boxing world. He also announced that he would again fight in the boxing ring but against the UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou in a super fight for the ages. Francis Ngannou joined Tyson in the ring and agreed to the boxing match and said that they will fight against each other to prove the Baddest MF in the combat sports world.
Now their promoter has said that this fight might go to be bigger than the previous super fight between a boxer and MMA fighter. The previous superfight was between Floyd Mayweather and UFC superstar Conor McGregor. The fight was one of the biggest fights in combat sports. Conor gave an amazing performance against arguably the greatest boxer of all time, Floyd Mayweather.
Arum, who is the promoter of Tyson Fury said after the fight that this is a matchup between Tyson Fury and Francis Ngannou could become the biggest combat fight of all time.
“This UFC guy, assuming that he’s able to fight, that’ll do monumental business,” Arum told BoxingScene.com. “They know each other and they know how much there is to be made for that fight. I think Fury and this UFC heavyweight champion, Ngannou, do bigger business than Mayweather and McGregor.”
Francis Ngannou talks about Tyson Fury’s Fight
Francis Ngannou in his recent interview said that he would be resigning from the UFC only if they allow him to fight Tyson Fury.
“The Tyson Fury fight has to be part of the discussion,” Ngannou said during an interview on “The MMA Hour” on Monday. “That’s not an option. It has to be part of the discussion because if that’s not part of the discussion, it will never be. If I sign another contract now, basically the same model of the contract, I’m screwed. That’s not happening ever. So we have to figure out a way to implement this into a contract.”
“I think the UFC is a good promotion, and I want to keep fighting,” Ngannou said. “The Tyson Fury is not my last fight. I want to keep fighting. After Tyson Fury there’s still a lot of fights. There’s the Jon Jones, there’s the Stipe trilogy.”
“There’s big fights I can do in the UFC, and I would really like that to happen. I would really like us to get to a common point. Yes, I can do the Tyson Fury fight on my own, but what’s next? I would like to keep fighting. I would like for us to come to an agreement.”
