Another crossover fight for big money and publicity
Fury vs Ngannou shows that money always talks, but the former UFC star undeniably has a puncher's chance.
Meh to me that’s the rocky 1 situation. fury looked his best because he didn’t take it seriously simple as that. Do people really think that was the same fury who beat wilder twice or beat Klitscho…of course it wasn’t anyway I scored it for fury pretty convincingly. This isn’t mma or Muay thai where 1 knockdown wins the whole fight 9 out of 10 times. It takes more to win a fight than one knock down and you can check the stats fury landed more so he won. Francis did a good job for sure. But in mma he was destroying everyone in one round never going 5 rounds let alone 10 that alone shows the difference in striking qualityI had no interest in seeing this fight. I blew it off as another excuse for Fury ducking top contenders. Mind you, I'm not here to debate who "really won" the fight. The decision was made, so we have no choice but to accept it.
But an 0-0 newcomer going 12 rounds with the undefeated champ and forcing a split decision has either exposed Fury, or the entire heavyweight class in boxing.
