Former heavyweight champion of the world Mike Tyson was one of the most devastating punchers the sport had ever seen. In his younger days, he was knocking out grown men and climbing through the ranks.
Today, a similar devastating puncher exists in the UFC as well. Francis Ngannou is without a doubt a very phenomenal puncher in the UFC heavyweight division. He has had 11 fights in the UFC and has won 9 of them and has won all 9 of them via stoppages. In his last three fights, he has fought Junior Dos Santos, Cain Velasquez and Curtis Blaydes and has knocked out all three of them in less than a three minutes combined.
Ngannou recently visited Tyson at his ranch in Los Angeles, where the boxing legend taught Ngannou some techniques.

If Ngannou wasn’t scary enough in the UFC, now he’s got the former baddest man on the planet giving him tricks. Ngannou also later tweeted out that Tyson had agreed to train him for a potential future fight against Tyson Fury if it ever comes into fruition.

“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.
