Tyson Fury on Saturday, October 28, he will face a boxing debutant in Riyadh Francis Ngannou. The Cameroonian is a former UFC heavyweight champion, who decided to leave the largest MMA organization in the world and test himself as a boxer.
The player was famous for finishing his opponents very quickly. Interestingly, in 20 fights in his career, he only finished on points four times. He only managed to win this way once. 11 knockouts in the first round speak for themselves.
Many, however, condemn the Cameroonian to failure and his next rival The “Gypsy King” is to be Oleksandr Usyk. The Ukrainian holds the WBA, WBO and IBF belts and, like the Briton, he has not lost in the professional ring yet. In his last title defense, Usyk defeated Fury’s compatriot, Daniel Dubois, in August in Wrocław.
The “King of the Gypsies” recently gave an interesting interview to the Daily Mail, in which he explained the long-lingering issue of his figure, which, however, does not entirely resemble the ones we are accustomed to from other professional boxers. – It’s nice to have a good body. I would like to have one, but I have no chance of it. I’ve been training for 20 years and I still don’t have one. I recently went to a 12-week camp where I lived like a monk, and yet I don’t have a good body – said the Briton.
It is worth adding that Polish viewers will have to pay extra to watch the Fury-Ngannou fight. DAZN despite a fixed monthly subscription ranging from PLN 18 to PLN 39.99 introduced an additional PPV service to watch the boxing gala in Riyadh, the cost of which is PLN 44.99.
