Tyson Fury has been branded a “scumbag” for deciding to fight former UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou.
Fury and Ngannou will fight in Saudi Arabia later this year in a crossover bout, but many fans have been left dissapointed in Fury’s choice of opponent given the fact he is the current WBC heavyweight champion.
Former UFC legend Chael Sonnen has shared his thoughts on the fight and it’s safe to say he’s not impressed.
Speaking to The Schmo he said,
“What kind of a scumbag is Fury, though, man?”
“I’ve really got to tell you: Fury broke my heart. I liked this guy, and I liked the entertainment. I like so many things about him. You take a guy like Fury, who God made huge, gave great coaches, great training partners, great experiences, too.
“He has weapons and tools that other men can’t deal with if they’re not armed. And he’s going to choose to use those to beat up a guy who’s at least 37 with no experience and is on one leg? That’s a bully, and it’s a scumbag. I would never do that to somebody. Jesse James made a lot of money, and there’s hitmen that made a lot of money. I mean, there’s things that you can do, but you own it. You’re a bully, and you’re a scumbag.”
