Tyson Fury Breaks Down Anthony Joshua vs. Francis Ngannou



WBC Heavyweight Champion Tyson Fury has looked ahead to tonight’s blockbuster heavyweight attraction, which pits his domestic rival Anthony Joshua against the former UFC superstar who almost handed Fury his first professional defeat, Francis Ngannou, Tom Eaton reports for Boxing Social.


Ngannou came close to pulling off one of boxing’s greatest upsets when he faced Fury back in October. He floored the Brit in the third round before losing a razor-thin split decision.


Just five months later, the Cameroonian power-puncher finds himself preparing for yet another monumental fight, as he takes on two-time champion, ‘AJ’, with hopes of securing a first win in the boxing ring.


Speaking to The Stomping Ground, Fury admitted that anything could happen on the night, adding that the bout is of little interest to him.


“I think it’s a great fight. When I was fighting Ngannou, it was a mismatch, a ‘bulls**t’ fight, but it is what it is. Styles make fights, and that’s what it is.


“I’m not sure what people expected of the man before that [fight with me]. I know that he was supposed to be a 1000/1 shot that was useless and couldn’t fight, but he proved everyone wrong, so it was fantastic for him.


“I’ve put him on the map and made him a multi-millionaire, and now I am making him even more money, so he needs to thank me, doesn’t he? He needs to get on his knees and kiss my feet.


“I don’t know, and I don’t care [how the fight goes], to be honest. Whatever happens, the best man will win on the night. They are heavyweight giants, aren’t they? So anyone can win. There are some brilliant fights on Friday. I am looking forward to the whole bill.”


Joshua-Ngannou takes place tonight, topping a card featuring a WBC featherweight world title clash and another intriguing heavyweight affair.
