In a press conference that erupted into verbal fireworks, UFC powerhouse Francis Ngannou fired shots at boxing heavyweight Tyson Fury, declaring, “You’re nothing in front of me, and I’ll beat you twice every Sunday out of the boxing ring.” The sparks flew after Fury interrupted Ngannou’s press conference for the highly anticipated Anthony Joshua fight.

Ngannou, known for his bone-crushing power in the Octagon, didn’t mince words, emphasizing that Fury’s refuge lies solely within the confines of the boxing ring. The Cameroonian-French fighter went on to issue a stern warning to Fury, claiming that if they were to meet outside the ring, Fury would be in for a “really bad time.”

“Your only chance is in a boxing ring with boxing rules. When you step out of that ring, you better stay 5 meters away because if I lose it, you’re gonna have a really bad time,” Ngannou asserted, adding an extra layer of intensity to the already heated exchange.

Tyson Fury, never one to back down from a challenge, responded to Ngannou’s threats. Confirming the possibility of facing Ngannou again, Fury stated that it might happen if he emerges victorious in his upcoming clash against Anthony Joshua. The prospect of a cross-discipline showdown between two of the most formidable fighters in their respective arenas has sent shockwaves through the combat sports community.

As speculation intensifies, fight fans are eagerly awaiting the outcome of Fury’s bout with Joshua, knowing that a victory could pave the way for a showdown that transcends the boundaries of boxing and mixed martial arts. The tension between Ngannou and Fury has added an intriguing subplot to the already electric atmosphere surrounding these two titans of combat sports.
