Tyson Fury Returns to the Ring: Faces Francis Ngannou in Historic Crossover Bout

Tyson Fury is set to make his long-awaited return to the boxing ring next month as he takes on former UFC champion Francis Ngannou in a groundbreaking crossover fight. The Gypsy King had been dropping hints about a potential clash with MMA legend Francis Ngannou ever since his knockout victory over Dillian Whyte in April 2022, where he successfully defended his WBC belt.

Change in Opponents:

Despite the excitement, this matchup has faced criticism from fans who were hoping for a showdown between Fury and Oleksandr Usyk for the undisputed heavyweight world titles. Negotiations for that fight fell apart, as did the possibility of a Battle of Britain encounter with his heavyweight rival, Anthony Joshua.

Fury vs. Ngannou Under Boxing Rules:

Instead of the anticipated fights, Tyson Fury will now go head-to-head with former UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou, following professional boxing rules. This bout marks Ngannou’s first appearance in a boxing ring since parting ways with Dana White’s company in January. The fight is scheduled for 10 rounds and will be an official contest. However, Fury’s heavyweight title will not be at stake in this matchup. Fans can catch this unique crossover clash on Saturday, October 28, in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. While the official start time for the event is yet to be announced, the main event’s ring-walks are expected to commence around 10pm UK time.
