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 tone 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.
“Who would like to see me fight this beast boxing rules, UFC gloves?” Fury wrote, tagging the UFC, UFC President Dana White, and Ngannou in the tweet. A little over two hours later, Ngannou responded, suggesting that they flip around the conditions.
“How about MMA rules with boxing gloves?” Ngannou wrote. “I can do you that favor.”
Francis Ngannou’s recent relation with UFC president Dana White seems tainted, to say the least. Dana made comments that Ngannou can leave the UFC if he wants.
“Look, if you want to be with us, we’d love to have you. If you don’t want to be with us, no problem. It’s all good,” White claimed. “I think his contract, and this is off the top of my head, if he wins he still has time with us after this fight. He’d probably have one more fight.”
For Ngannou to take this fight he would have to not be under UFC contract anymore. Could the risk be worth the reward? Ngannou has serious power but it’s a different ball game when you have to generate that same power from a boxing stance. Either way, Ngannou seems game to make some real bank and test his boxing skills in the ring.
“After I handle business on Jan. 22 I’ll fight you under any special rule set you want,” Ngannou wrote. “In a ring, an octagon or a phone booth.”
