Francis Ngannou seems open to the idea of a matchup with two-time heavyweight boxing champion Tyson Fury, sending a stern warning to the ‘The Gypsy King’ on social media.
Fury has promised to ‘roast’ Ngannou after he beats Anthony Joshua, but Ngannou claims the WBC heavyweight champ has no idea what he’s letting himself in for.
Ngannou, who captured the heavyweight title with brutal knockout of Stipe Miocic at UFC 260, sent the following message to Fury on Twitter.
“If this guy did this to you, what do you think I would do?” Ngannou snapped back at Fury, posting a bloody photo of the latter following his unanimous decision win over Otto Wallin in 2019.
Fury beat Wallin via unanimous decision and then went on to TKO Deontay Wilder to win the WBC and The Ring heavyweight titles, setting up a superfight with reigning WBA and WBO heavyweight champ Joshua, who has reportedly signed a two-fight deal with Fury.
Ngannou is expected to defend his heavyweight title against Jon Jones if ‘Bones’ can come to an agreement with the UFC on fighter pay.
