WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury has recently gone on record calling out former UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou to a mixed rules boxing bout.

There has been talk of a boxing match between the undefeated Englishman and hardest hitting human in recorded history for a while now, and now that Ngannou’s a free agent with his UFC release being granted, it could be the perfect opportunity to make this fight happen.

Fury has been without a dance partner since winning his trilogy with Derek Chisora back in December of last year, and there has been talk of Ngannou making his boxing debut against the former intercontinental champion as well.

Fury is also working on a title unification bout opposing WBA, IBF, WBO, Ring Magazine, and IBO heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk.

Nonetheless, should negotiations for those fights go south, Fury has made Ngannou the following offer, posted on Twitter by Michael Benson:

“If the contract doesn’t get signed with Oleksandr Usyk, then we’ll do the Ngannou fight.”

The cage may be a strange touch to put on a fight like this, as well as four ounce gloves. That being said, who wouldn’t want to see it? We’ve got perhaps the no. 1 heavyweight boxer on the planet and the proven no. 1 mixed martial artist on the planet that is capable of knocking any living man in the world today unconscious.

Would you like to see Tyson Fury vs Francis Ngannou in the near future?

I became a fan of combat sports when I was 12 years old. I was scrolling through the channels and landed upon versus, where WEC was televised. Urijah Faber fought Jens Pulver for the second time that night. That’s the first fight I saw, and the fight that got me hooked on the sport. Since then, the sport has grown so rapidly, and my goal is to enlighten everyone on what’s going on in the sport today.
