Tyson Fury, Francis Ngannou

Tyson Fury says he’d knock Francis Ngannou out in seconds in little gloves

WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury and former UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou came face-to-face today in Saudi Arabia.

Speaking at the press conference ahead of their Oct. 28 boxing match in Riyadh which has been billed ‘Battle of the Baddest’, Fury said: “I’d like to fight Ngannou in the cage, I think I can beat him for sure.

“He’s not a good wrestler; he’s known for striking, and I’m a better striker than him. In little gloves, I’d knock him out in seconds.

“I’d fight [current UFC heavyweight champion] Jon Jones also in the cage, if the money was right.”

Fury’s WBC belt will not be on the line when they meet due to WBC rules.
