Fury says he wants to fight Ngannou if Usyk doesn’t work out
British boxer Tyson Fury called the condition for the fight against the former champion of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Francis Ngannou. His words are reported by Give me Sport.
Fury said he wants to fight Ngannou if he fails to organize a fight with Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk. “I want to fight Francis with four ounce gloves. This is risky because Francis was at one point considered the strongest puncher in martial arts. With these gloves, the only thing required is one hit and it’s over,” the Briton shared.
On January 15, it became known about Ngannou’s decision to leave the UFC. The athlete refused to renew the agreement, which was designed for two years and would make him the highest paid heavyweight in the history of the organization. He had previously complained about financial conditions at the promotion.
Ngannou has been with the UFC since 2015. In total, during his career in mixed martial arts, he won 17 victories and suffered three defeats. Fury has 33 wins and one draw, as well as the World Boxing Council (WBC) heavyweight championship belt.
