Mike Tyson helped Francis Ngannou prepare for his fight with Tyson Fury.
Ngannou gave the WBC heavyweight champion a tough night and only narrowly lost out to the ‘Gypsy King’
But Mike Tyson has defended Fury and believes it was just a bad night at the office for the Brit.
Speaking to Fight Hub he said:
“Hey, we should (keep in mind the performance against Francis Ngannou), but you have to understand he’s still champion.”
“He made that night a great night and gave Francis the opportunity. This is just a bad night at the office for him. We all have bad nights, and listen, that was his bad night.”
On his prediction for who will win the huge undisputed clash Tyson revealed he’s still picking Fury to be victorious.
“I got to go with Fury,” Tyson said. “I think he’s the best fighter in the world, especially in the heavyweight division. Great fighters lose, great fighters look bad, but that doesn’t stop them from being great fighters.”
