Ngannou Retorts Tyson Fury’s KO Forecast with Embarrassing Snapshot

Francis Ngannou vs. Tyson Fury

The hype has begun for the upcoming boxing bout between Francis Ngannou and Tyson Fury.

This Wednesday saw a social media spat between the PFL heavyweight and the heavyweight boxing champion, exchanging barbs just a day after their Oct. 28 duel in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia was officially announced.

Fury initiated the spat with his typical selfie video, telling Ngannou, “You big stiff dosser, you’re getting knocked out.” (Dosser is a colloquial term for a homeless person.)

Countering, Ngannou brought up one of Fury’s least flattering career moments, a knockdown in his first fight with Deontay Wilder where he was floored on his way to a split draw against “The Bronze Bomber.”

The announcement of Ngannou’s fight against Fury electrified the internet on Tuesday following over a year of back-and-forth challenges, verbal sparring, and promotional hindrances. Fury had initially dared Ngannou to a boxing match with four-ounce MMA gloves, sparking a media buzz about the potential cross-discipline clash. However, Fury’s boxing commitments – along with Ngannou’s then-UFC obligations – prevented the match from happening.

Ngannou, an ex-UFC heavyweight champion, left the top-tier promotion last December and declared his future MMA ambitions earlier this year. His aspiration to box against Fury remained unfulfilled until this week. A bout with Wilder seemed more likely when the former heavyweight boxing champ appeared at a PFL event and proposed an MMA/boxing switch with “The Predator.”

It remains to be seen whether the Ngannou vs. Fury contest will be a professional or an exhibition match. Nevertheless, the pipe dream is now a reality, and the heavyweights have started their promotional campaigning.
