Tyson Fury vs Francis Ngannou Prediction
Tyson Fury has established himself as a dominant force in the heavyweight division, effortlessly dismantling formidable opponents and reducing some of boxing’s most fearsome names to ordinary competitors when they step into the ring with him.
However, for his upcoming endeavor, Fury will be pitted against one of the most formidable power punchers in the history of mixed martial arts.
The allure of this fight has its similarities to Conor McGregor taking on Floyd Mayweather, with McGregor’s punching power seeing unstoppable at the time. The one blemish with this fight is that Fury has already taken Wilder’s best punches over the course of three incredible fights.
This realization makes the current Tyson Fury vs. Francis Ngannou odds all the more astonishing. In the realm of mixed martial arts, Ngannou proved invincible once he honed his fighting skills. He concluded his UFC career with an impressive six-fight winning streak, toppling the likes of future Hall of Famer Stipe Miocic and rising star Ciryl Gane.
However, this is the realm of boxing, where Tyson Fury remains undefeated, boasting a record of 33-0-1 and consistently making his opponents appear amateurish. Undeniably, Fury enjoys a considerable advantage, as emphasized by the latest odds and I expect him to make this a show.
Betting Pick: Fury by TKO.
Heavyweight Champions Collide
Tyson Fury has always entertained cross-over fights but has yet to take one yet. Aside from fighting Usky and maybe Joshua next, there aren’t a ton of challenges left for “The Gypsy King” in boxing. Fury is no stranger to taking on “big punchers”, he’s coming off his second win over Deontay Wilder, who is easily the hardest hitter in the heavyweight division.
Fury and Ngannou are two of combats sport’s greatest heavyweight fighters who have been connected for a future exhibition fight. Fury who’s a boxer has welcomed Ngannou to the ring, while Ngannou returned the challenge with his own challenge inside the octagon. In a time when super fights are the rage, this would be a sight to behold.
The opening odds for Fury vs Ngannou seem fair, Fury is still in his prime and has proven himself against the hardest hitters in the division. For Ngannou, boxing is such a different beast to transfer over from MMA. In his last UFC title unification bout against elite kickboxer Cyril Gane, Ngannou decided to take a wrestling approach later in the fight as he wasn’t having as much success standing and trading.
Earlier in Fury’s boxing career, he wasn’t known as a big puncher. However, he’s now finished three of his last four opponents and has developed a style that can really smother you. Chances are Fury will bring his charisma to this exhibition bout and even the WWE again as the gates open for him in this post-retirement life.
