Frank Warren has revealed that Tyson Fury and Francis Ngannou could rematch in the not too distant future.
Fury narrowly avoided defeat to the former UFC heavyweight champion but put in a subpar performance from what you would expect from the WBC heavyweight champion of the world.
Ngannou won the plaudits from the boxing community and is chasing another shot at ‘The Gypsy King’ and is now ranked in the WBC’s top 10 and is eligible for a title fight against Fury.
Of course we have the undisputed heavyweight showdown between Fury and Oleksandr Usyk in February to look forward to and Warren thinks we have a ‘good chance’ in seeing the Fury vs Ngannou rematch.
Speaking on the MMA Hour the legendary promoter said on the rematch:
“I think there’s a good chance of that happening, I really do.”
Asked whether the fight would happen next he replied:
“That I don’t know (if the rematch will be next for both men). That is too far forward. But let’s get the big one out of the way and see where we go.”
