Francis Ngannou and Tyson Fury express readiness to fight

A match between Francis Ngannou and British boxer Tyson Fury is likely to happen soon, following confirmation by both parties of their readiness to face each other.

It had been Ngannou’s wish to get into the boxing ring, right from the time he was still at the UFC.

An unsuccessful negotiation for a less restrictive deal with the company resulted in his departure. He recently signed a more flexible contract with the PFL, which allows him to box.

“Tyson Fury, since none of these boxers want to fight, let’s make it official” the mixed martial artist wrote on Twitter.

“Let’s go Francis, ready to rumble” Fury responded.

It is worth noting that Tyson Fury has been out of the ring since defeating fellow British boxer Derek Chisora, in a heavyweight title defense last December.

For months now, the boxer has been in talks with several other heavyweights, including Oleksandr Usyk, Anthony Joshua, and Andy Ruiz, but none of the multiple planned fights has happened.

Tyson Fury has not lost a fight in his professional boxing career so far.
