The undefeated Tyson Fury is a two-time heavyweight champion who has thirty wins in his career and has done it all in boxing. Fury, who has been showing his intentions of fighting in the UFC for a while, hasn’t entered the octagon yet as he is fully involved with boxing. Recently, ‘The Gypsy King’ was spotted attending the weigh-ins for Canelo Alvarez vs Billy Joe Saunders in Texas.

While clicking pictures with the fans, he was informed that Francis Ngannou claimed he could beat him. ‘The Gypsy King’ replied, “A lot of people talk a lot of sh*t but don’t back it up. Wrestling up and down is for girls, men stand up and fight. If he wants to make some real money, come and see the Gypsy King and stop f**king around.”

Considering the comments made by Tyson Fury, it seems like ‘The Gypsy King’ wants to face ‘The Predator’ inside the boxing ring. He has no MMA experience, therefore fighting a top MMA fighter in an MMA fight could be risky for the British boxer.

Francis Ngannou vs Tyson Fury – A fight to make

‘The Predator’, who became the third African UFC champion after defeating Stipe Miocic at UFC 260, is one of the scariest and most powerful hitters in the company. Francis Ngannou, who believes his power can stop almost anybody, has been vocal about his intentions to fight Fury.

On the other hand, Tyson Fury believes he is ready for anything and everything as he has faced a similar opponent to Ngannou in the form of Deontay Wilder.

Ngannou wanted to become a boxer when he left Cameroon and moved to France. Hence, this fight with Fury will provide him with an opportunity to full fill his boyhood dream. The matchup will target both boxing and MMA fans, thus making for an excellent business opportunity for all involved.

The fight between the two seems very real and could happen soon. But, for now, the UFC heavyweight king has been pushing a fight with the pound-for-pound number one fighter, Jon Jones. This is another dream match the fans are eager to witness in 2021.
