Boxing: Francis Ngannou agrees to challenge Tyson Furry

In an interview with Canal Plus, Francis Ngannou agrees to challenge the British boxer Tyson Fury. And a promoter has already offered to organize the fight.

After his departure from the UFC, Francis Ngannou might be getting into boxing. And quite a few boxers would like to take on the Cameroonian. Dillian White, former WBC world heavyweight champion, has indeed challenged Ngannou. But the Cameroonian would have already found an opponent in the person of Tyson Furry. Invited by Canal Plus, the world champion is ready to face the British colossus. "The next step could be that but once again, we must finalize everything. I recall that it's been more than two years that Tyson Fury and I are heated on social networks, "he said.

For the occasion, the "Gypsy King" proposed to organize this fight in a cage, with "MMA gloves and English boxing rules". To top it all off, the Briton wants to offer the role of referee to Mike Tyson. "Obviously, we all need this fight. It has been long enough. Today we have the opportunity to dot the i's," Ngannou said. Frank Warren, Fury's British co-promoter, is not saying no to this clash between Tyson Fury and the "Predator".

Sports logic would have wanted Tyson Fury, WBC heavyweight champion, to face Oleksandr Usyk, holder of the other three belts in the heavyweight category. "If the contract is not signed with Usyk for the fight of the century in boxing, then we will make the fight of Ngannou, promised in recent days the 34-year-old boxer. Whether it's in Las Vegas or Wembley, who knows?"
