Sure, Ngannou looks like a great puncher in MMA. But, you are comparing him to other MMA punchers. Boxing is a whole different game. All they do is punch and defend punches. In boxing, the punch defense is much better, because it has to work against people who specialize in and are very good at punching. You cannot change levels and shoot... And in boxing, you have to take punches from people who specialize in and are very good at punching.
Remember.... Fury got up from this... and won that fight. (he KOed Wilder in the next two fights)
If this were an MMA fight, Ngannou all day.... but this is a boxing match. Ngannou is going out.
I 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.
