The Most Anticipated Fight Of All Time!

Former Heavyweight Champion Francis Ngannou face the boxing world champion Tyson Fury on October 28, 2023, in Riyadh, capital of Saudi Arabia. The boxing fight is not worth the belt of the category and has the duration of ten rounds. The Cameroonian’s desire to face Fury is old and Dana White’s organization contract does not allow confrontations outside the event was one of the reasons why the athlete left the UFC and signed with the PFL.

Ngannou and Fury announced the fight on social networks and there was provocation between the fighters. The British boxer used social networks to challenge the athlete: “Are you ready, Francis Ngannou?”, posted the current WBC heavyweight champion.

The Brit is the WBC heavyweight champion and has important names on his record, such as former heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder, with two wins and a draw against ‘The Bronze Bomber’. Other appearances, like three wins against Dereck Chisora ​​and positive results against Dilian Whyte and Wladimir Klitschko mark the boxer’s career.
