Tyson Fury vs Francis Ngannou: prediction
Two of the most representative fighters in boxing and in MMA will collide in a boxing ring, with Fury looking to defeat the colossus Ngannou and start thinking of his potential clash with Oleksandr Usyk. The Cameroonian, meanwhile, wants to prove everyone wrong and defeat the Brit against all odds.
However, The Gipsy King is undefeated for a reason and has been able to take Deontay Wilder’s power in three fights, which is not a good sign for Ngannou.
Expect Fury’s boxing IQ, combinations, and intense pace to overwhelm the muscular and inexperienced boxer in Ngannou, in a fight that will likely end with the former UFC star going to the canvas.
Prediction: Tyson Fury by stoppage.
