Boxing heavyweight champion Tyson Fury has made a bold claim, stating that he could knock out Francis Ngannou in just seconds if they were to face off in an MMA fight. Fury, also known as the “Gypsy King,” believes that he has what it takes to defeat the UFC heavyweight contender.
Ngannou recently expressed his interest in a potential boxing match with Fury, but the British boxer seems more inclined towards an MMA fight against former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones. Fury believes that the money would have to be right for him to step inside the cage and take on Jones.
Fury’s confidence in his abilities is evident, as he confidently stated that he would knock out Ngannou within seconds if they were to fight in an MMA bout. However, it remains to be seen whether this fight will ever come to fruition.
The boxing world has been buzzing with speculation about potential crossover fights between boxers and MMA fighters. Recently, Floyd Mayweather Jr. faced off against Conor McGregor in a highly anticipated boxing match, which Mayweather won. This event sparked further interest in cross-discipline matchups.
Fury, who is known for his flamboyant personality and outspoken nature, has successfully transitioned between boxing and professional wrestling in the past. He even won the WWE’s “Crown Jewel” event in Saudi Arabia in 2019.
While many fans are intrigued by the idea of seeing Fury compete in MMA, it remains uncertain whether he can replicate his success in the octagon. MMA is a vastly different sport, requiring a different skill set and strategy compared to boxing.
Only time will tell if Fury’s claims will materialize into actual fights. For now, fans can only speculate and wait to see if these potential matchups will become a reality.
