Boxing Legend Shares Implications of Francis Ngannou Defeating Tyson Fury

9 months ago By Sports Desk

Mike Tyson recently discussed the Francis Ngannou vs. Tyson Fury boxing match and made a massive claim about its implications. The legendary heavyweight pugilist believes that if Ngannou wins, it will be the biggest upset in sporting history. Given that Tyson is also training the Cameroonian, he’s unsurprisingly emotionally invested in the outcome of the fight. 

Tyson Fury will welcome Francis Ngannou to the professional boxing world on October 28 in Saudi Arabia. The WBC heavyweight king is heavily favored to win thanks to his incredible resume and experience in the boxing ring. However, Ngannou is widely known as the hardest-hitting puncher in MMA and could capitalize on a puncher’s chance. 

This would be Ngannou’s first combat sports outing since his last fight against Ciryl Gane at UFC 270 last year. Soon after, ‘The Predator’ left the promotion after falling out with Dana White due to contract negotiations gone wrong. Over the next several months, Ngannou looked for a high-profile boxer to make his boxing debut against. 

While Tyson Fury was always his top priority, he was strongly linked to Deontay Wilder and Anthony Joshua. Nevertheless, the former UFC heavyweight champion finally got the fight he always wanted. Soon after their bout was officially announced, Mike Tyson revealed that he’d been roped in to train the Cameroonian. 

In a recent interview during the Tyson Fury vs. Francis Ngannou open workouts in Las Vegas, Mike Tyson claimed that if ‘The Predator’ pulled off an upset win, it would be the biggest ever in “entertainment” history. Tyson added that his addition to Ngannou’s training camp has boosted the former UFC champion’s confidence instead of his technique. He also iterated that Ngannou hasn’t adopted his boxing technique and is going to box in a very different style. 

The professional boxing match between Fury and Ngannou is scheduled for 10 rounds. However, Fury’s WBC heavyweight title will not be on the line.
