Francis Ngannou made his professional boxing debut last October and very nearly shocked the world.
The former UFC heavyweight champion came into the bout with Tyson Fury as a huge underdog but surprised many, by dropping ‘The Gypsy King’ and only narrowly being defeated via a split-decision from the judges scorecards.

Speaking recently to TMZ Sports he was asked if he wants to fight the winner of Fury vs. Usyk and it’s clear to see that Fury is very much still on Ngannou’s mind.
He responded: “I’m not looking for the winner… I’m looking for Tyson. Tyson owes me a fight. I don’t give a s*** about the winner of Tyson and Usyk. Win or lose, I want Tyson. I’m coming after Tyson.”
In his next outing he is set to face another British heavyweight in Anthony Joshua, how do you see the fight playing out? Let us know in the comments.
