“He did a great job (against Fury). Number 10 is too low!”
Tyson explained exactly why he thinks Ngannou should be higher ranked.
He continued: “He did a great job with one of the greatest fighters of all time. His first time boxing, fighting for the heavyweight championship, fighting against the best heavyweight of his era. He deserves a lot of credentials after that.”
