Freshly crowned UFC heavyweight champion, Francis Ngannou dreams of a crown in the boxing ring. The Cameroonian fighter does not rule out a fight against Anthony Joshua or Tyson Fury in the future.
Francis Ngannou's new heavyweight title only wets the Cameroonian fighter's appetite. The new king of the UFC wants to push the doors of history even further. And the next conquest could be in boxing. The Predator could see himself stepping into the ring to write a new chapter in his glorious destiny. A dream that the native of Batié hopes to embrace in the most majestic of ways after his victory over Stipe Miocic.
And what could be more monumental than a fight against Anthony Joshua or Tyson Fury? In any case, the UFC's Indomitable Lion wouldn't say no to a clash between the two British boxers. "It's in the future. It's definitely somewhere. I will box, I have to box in my career. My first dream has always been the noble art and even if I went to MMA, which I love, I still have to accomplish something in boxing," Francis Ngannou maintains in an interview on ESPN.
Not before 2022
But the prospect of a Ngannou vs Joshua or Ngannou vs Fury fight is not on the agenda. In any case, the possible clash could not be organized in 2021. Because the Nigerian-born boxer and his British compatriot are preparing a double confrontation this year. In any case, Francis Ngannou has a big challenge ahead of him: the retention of his championship belt. His next opponent could be the American Jon Jones.
