Tyson Fury faces Francis Ngannou on October 28th in Saudi Arabia.
The WBC Heavyweight champion has faced British opposition in his last two defences, firstly Dillian Whyte who he flattened with a sixth round uppercut and lastly Derek Chisora who he unsurprisingly beat down in a one sided contest last December.

Fury’s, American promoter, Bob Arum believes his next opponent Francis Ngannou will pose a serious threat to the Gypsy King.
In an interview with Pro Boxing Fans, Arum claimed that Ngannou is a harder puncher than both Derek Chisora and Dillian Whyte. He said:
“Absolutely this is a more dangerous fight! Ngannou hits harder than either Chisora or Dillian Whyte, and when you’re in with a puncher like that, and you’re not in perfect shape, that’s when you can get knocked out.
Ngannou is a tremendous puncher, probably the best puncher in the history of the UFC. This is going to be a really interesting fight. It’s going to be very fun to watch.”
