Ngannou goes down with Fury this weekend for a tough fight

Ngannou Vs Fury fight

Fury has ‘signed’ an agreement to face Oleksandr Usyk in an undisputed title fight next year, but first faces Ngannou in a unique heavyweight clash this weekend

Francis Ngannou says he and Tyson Fury will “run it back” should he defeat the heavyweight boxing champion in their crossover clash this weekend, and revealed he would then want to take on Fury’s British rival Anthony Joshua.

Fury and Ngannou will go head to head in the boxing ring this weekend, in a unique heavyweight clash. Fury reigns as WBC heavyweight champion, while Ngannou will be making his boxing debut and fighting for the first time since leaving the UFC.

The Cameroonian retained the UFC heavyweight title last year before ultimately giving up the gold in January and joining the Professional Fighters League this spring. Ngannou, 37, will make his promotional debut with the MMA company in 2024, but first, he crosses into boxing to face Fury.

The Briton, 35, is unbeaten and on course for an undisputed-title fight with Oleksandr Usyk in Saudi Arabia, if he can avoid a shock defeat by the heavy-handed Ngannou.

But if Ngannou, who is said to have the biggest punch in the world, is able to stun the ‘Gypsy King’ then plans for an undisputed-title fight between Fury and Usyk may be delayed.

“I think if I am victorious we are going to run it back, for sure,” Ngannou told Sky Sports. “Then maybe see Anthony Joshua for after,” he added.
