Fury last fought against Deontay Wilder on October 9 in 2021. The highly awaited trilogy more than delivered to the hype. That fight went down as one of the best heavyweight fights and trilogies of all time.

Fury came out the victor after knocking Wilder out in the 11th round for the third and final time to hold on to his WBC heavyweight title. Following his fight against ‘The Bronze Bomber’, Fury made his wishes known.

Francis Ngannou calls out Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder

The reigning UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou called out ‘The Gypsy King’ and ‘The Bronze Bomber’ amid contractual disagreements with the UFC. “It’s always been down the line. This is something I’m not taking my eyes off of.”

“It’s gonna happen, either way. Even if, when the UFC and I finalize a deal, the boxing part has to be into it because I can’t see myself retire without boxing,” Ngannou said.
