Tyson Fury is about to face former UFC Heavyweight Champion Francis Ngannou later this autumn.
By this bout, UFC star Francis Ngannou will make his professional boxing debut against one of the best boxers in recent times, The Gypsy King, Tyson Fury.
After the failure of finalizing the fight against Heavyweight Champion Oleksandr Usyk, Fury is aiming to take fights that can bring a lot of money.
Francis Ngannou’s contract came to an end with UFC in December and both parties decided not to extend the contract due to salary-related issues.
After leaving UFC, Ngannou signed a contract with the Professional Fighters League (PFL) to pursue his MMA career. The contract is flexible and allows him to box Tyson Fury.
The 37-year-old Cameroonian-French professional mixed martial artist has agreed to almost all terms and conditions to secure the fight with the boxing Heavyweight king.
Fury has already given a hint about how the fight will go on. He revealed fans will see fireworks when the two heavyweight giants will meet.
Francis is known for his power. If Francis needs to win, he needs to KO Tyson Fury as Tyson is a silky boxer with swift movements and is very technical in nature.
Previously, Tyson Fury has faced one of the hardest hitters in the boxing world, Deontay Wilder three times. Tyson won two of them whereas one fight went to draw. Although Tyson won two fights, Deontay managed to knock down Tyson a couple of times.
If Deontay can’t knock out Tyson Fury with his power, can Francis Ngannou do it in a boxing glove? Time will answer this, but when is the fight happening?
