Former UFC heavyweight Francis Ngannou is stepping into unfamiliar territory as he prepares to face one of the greatest boxers of all time, Tyson Fury. Despite the challenge that lies ahead, Ngannou is determined to showcase his boxing skills and prove that he should not be underestimated.
While power is a significant aspect of his skill set, there is more to Ngannou’s strategy than meets the eye. However, entering the boxing ring with all its intricacies, footwork, and defensive maneuvers remains uncharted territory for him. This leaves fans wondering about his true potential in the boxing arena.
Ngannou has made it clear that his boxing skills extend beyond sheer power. The heavyweight competitor possesses a well-thought-out strategy that he plans to employ against Tyson Fury.
The promoters have assured fans that the upcoming bout between Ngannou and Fury will not be a mere exhibition. Both combatants are committed to going for the knockout, making it a thrilling and high-stakes encounter. On paper, this formidable task appears insurmountable for Ngannou.
Nganno was recently asked by TMZ whether he would ask Mike Tyson for help. Ngannou expressed his admiration for the boxing styles of both Mike Tyson and Lennox Lewis. He believes that receiving advice and training from either of them could prove invaluable.
He replied: “I think getting some advice or some training from Mike Tyson would be good. I also think of somebody like Lennox Lewis who could be good. I love his boxing style, very basic but very sharp and efficient. One-two [punches], all that stuff, classic but very good. Yes, one of those guys. We are definitely reaching out.”
Tyson responded quickly to Ngannou’s invitation. He promised to provide Francis some advice, he said in a statement to ES News. Tyson is confident that Ngannou can be a force to be reckoned with inside the ring, and he does not view the bout as an easy victory for Fury.
As fans have yet to witness his full boxing potential, opponents cannot fully prepare for what he might bring to the match.
