Tyson Fury and Francis Ngannou battle it out for the title of the baddest man on the planet, when they square off in the boxing ring in the biggest heavyweight crossover boxing event of the year.
Undefeated heavyweight boxing champion Tyson “Gypsy King” Fury is no stranger to the limelight, he enjoys being in the biggest stages possible and on Saturday in Saudi Arabia he will be on the biggest international Pay-Per-View event of his career when he takes on the man the MMA world has dubbed the hardest hitting fighter in the world Francis “The Predator” Ngannou.
Fury is not scared of Ngannou’s power because in his own words, he already fought the hardest hitting heavyweight in Deontay Wilder and was able to survive his punches and knock him out in the process.
Even though Fury is confident he will win, he is not taking the MMA star lightly because he knows how unorthodox the mixed martial arts striking is compared to boxing, and that will give him a bit of trouble early before he downloads the data and picks him apart.
Ngannou has a tall task ahead of him in his boxing debut, he is taking on the greatest heavyweight of this generation and has to start his boxing career against the best.
Some say this is just a money grab by Fury but Ngannou believes he can pull off the upset and even hired legendary boxing champion “Iron” Mike Tyson to coach him and prepare a gameplan to beat Fury.
