Wilder's conditions for taking on Francis Ngannou

Since his fight against Tyson Fury, boxing stars are increasingly open to taking on Francis Ngannou. In particular, American Deontay Wilder is not closing the door. He's even ready to meet the Cameroonian in the cage, but has some questions about the rules.

What's Francis Ngannou's future in the cage? Will he sign a new MMA fight?  Since his victory over Cyril Gane on January 22, 2022, the Cameroonian hasn't fought in the octagon. He has been nursing a lengthy injury, left the UFC for the PFL and fought a prestige bout against Tyson Fury. With virtually no heavyweight opponent in the PFL, it's to boxers that the former UFC heavyweight king is heading. At present, discussions about a possible Ngannou fight revolve around Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder, two great boxing champions.

In fact, the latter has on several occasions replied that he was open to signing against the Cameroonian in a ring or cage. Deontay Wilder reaffirmed this over the weekend, with a number of conditions.

"I'd like to know more about these 'mixed rules'.I wouldn't mind fighting in the octagon. But I'd have to understand how the mixed rules are distributed. What do we mean by "mixed rules"? What can you do and what can't you do? I'm sure the rules are what they are, which is that the fight will be between a boxing fight and an MMA fight," says the American boxer in an interview.

"We have rules in boxing, we have rules in mixed martial arts. But when you mix the two, you have to find your own rules and it can get frustrating or confusing. But it could be something new and I'm all for change. I'd need to hear it, both sides would need to hear it, and we'd go from there," Wilder continues.
