Francis Ngannou Set for Epic Boxing Showdown with Tyson Fury

Francis Ngannou, one of the most dominant heavyweights in MMA, is set to make his boxing debut against Tyson Fury. Read about their epic showdown and Ngannou’s journey to the ring.

Francis Ngannou, known as one of the most dominant heavyweights in mixed martial arts, is set to make his long-awaited debut in the boxing ring. The Cameroonian fighter, also known as ‘The Predator,’ will face off against WBC Heavyweight Champion Tyson Fury in Saudi Arabia on October 28.

Ngannou’s journey to the boxing ring has been a gradual one. Despite his success in the UFC, where he held the heavyweight title, he has always had a desire to compete in boxing. However, restrictive contracts prevented him from making the switch until he entered free agency and signed with the PFL.

The upcoming fight with Fury marks Ngannou’s first boxing match since leaving the UFC. He relinquished his heavyweight title in the process, but he views this fight as the pinnacle of his career. In a recent appearance on the Hotboxin’ with Mike Tyson podcast, Ngannou discussed the mindset change he experienced after his loss to Stipe Miocic in 2018. He believes that defeat was the turning point that led to his subsequent success.

While Ngannou is focused on his upcoming boxing match, he has plans to return to MMA in the future. He is set to compete in the PFL SmartCage in 2024. But for now, all eyes are on his clash with Fury.
