Tyson Fury names Francis Ngannou as an alternate fighter if fight against Oleksandr Usyk falls through

Negotiations over the potential heavyweight fight between Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk are taking a little longer than they should at this point. Recent statements from Fury suggest that he would be interested in a fight with Francis Ngannou if the fight with Osyk doesn’t go ahead.

He has not fought since the Gypsy King’s victory over Derek Chisora ​​in December. The official announcement of Fury’s next big fight was eagerly awaited by boxing fans around the world.

In a recent interview with Give Me Sport, Fury expressed his desire to fight the former UFC Heavyweight Champion, saying: “I hope so, I really hope so. Because if Usyk doesn’t happen like that this month then I’ll say let’s go ahead and do Francis Ngannou.

Widely considered the scariest fighter in UFC history, Ngannou has no hesitation in switching to boxing and taking on Tyson Fury. The Franco-Cameroonian fighter revealed his plans for the future, one of which is to face Tyson Fury in a boxing match, following the termination of his contract with the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

Later, in response to Francis Ngannou’s challenge to a fight, Fury has accepted the fight, but only under certain conditions, including using unconventional rules and appointing Mike Tyson as the fight’s referee.

“And I’m trying to put Francis in a cage with 4 ounce gloves on and throw him down and swing some big bombs. It’s risky because Francis was once considered the greatest puncher in martial arts. So with 4 ounce gloves, one swipe and it’s all over,” Wut said.

Which of these two boxers, The Cat or The Predator, do you think The Gypsy King will face when he returns to the ring?
