Tyson Fury vs Francis Ngannou

This Saturday, Francis Ngannou will meet Tyson Fury in a boxing fight that will go down in history. These two heavyweights will meet off in what is being billed as the biggest crossover event in combat sports history. Ngannou, the former UFC heavyweight champion, aspires to do what boxing legends such as Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz have failed to do.

But it’s not just about them; this weekend’s heavyweight battle promises to be exciting. The fight card has a star-studded roster that includes Fabio Wardley, Joseph Parker, David Adeleye, and others. With such an impressive lineup, this event is sure to generate a lot of attention, and you won’t want to miss it.

Unbeaten British boxers Fabio Wardley and David Adeleye square off in a 12-round bout right before Fury vs. Ngannou in the co-main event. Joseph Parker, a former WBO interim heavyweight championship contender who trains with Fury, will make his comeback in a 10-round bout against Canadian boxer Simon Kean. Arslanbek Makhmudov, an undefeated prospect with a perfect 17-0 record and 16 knockouts, takes on Junior Anthony Wright in a 10-round battle.

Finally, Moses Itauma, an 18-year-old British heavyweight prospect, will face Istvan Bernath in a six-round bout. ESPN stated that Joe Tessitore would handle play-by-play duties, and he will be accompanied by Hall of Fame fighter Timothy Bradley Jr., Bernardo Osuna, and Brett Okamoto.

Tyson Fury vs Francis Ngannou

The non-title exhibition battle between Tyson Fury and Ngannou will not go the distance. Given both men’s strength and stature, the battle is likely to end in a knockdown or a technical knockout. Who will be victorious? The solution appears to be rather simple. It should be Fury, and it should be done quickly. The Wythenshawe native possesses all of the weapons necessary to overcome not only Ngannou, but any professional boxer in the world. Furthermore, Fury has gone unbeaten since beginning his boxing career, and he’s unlikely to lose that position, especially considering he’s anticipated to face the WBA, IBF, WBO, and IBO heavyweight champion next.

Ngannou has shown to be a superb athlete who thrived as an MMA fighter, but transitioning to boxing is not as simple as it may appear. Francis has demonstrated his ability to acquire new fighting tactics quickly, as he demonstrated against Cyril Gane in a battle when he crushed his opponent on the ground, something he had to practice for. The bout, however, will take place in a boxing ring, which is Fury’s universe.
