๐Ÿšจ Francis Ngannou breaks silence after Tyson Fury vs. Oleksandr Usyk announcement

Posted by

Francis Ngannou has reacted to the news that Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk have signed contracts to fight.

The former UFC heavyweight champion is due to face Tyson Fury on October 28th in Saudi Arabia in a huge crossover event dubbed โ€˜Battle Of The Baddest.โ€™

Yesterday it was announced that Fury and Usyk would collide to decide the first undisputed heavyweight champion since 1999 (Lennox Lewis) with the bout pencilled in for December 23rd or January 2024.

So you can forgive Ngannouโ€™s bemused reaction given that the two fights are bizarrely so close together.

Taking to X (formerly Twitter) he posted:

โ€˜I donโ€™t know whatโ€™s the minimum medical suspension in boxing but I really donโ€™t understand how Tyson can fight in December after whatโ€™s going to happen on 10/28.โ€™

Is Fury overlooking Ngannou or does he pose little threat? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
