Francis Ngannou on fighting Fury: "I know it's going to be very challenging for me"

The heavyweight clash between Tyson Fury and Francis Ngannou has been criticized by many as boxing fans were really looking forward to Tyson Fury fighting against a professional boxer next. Ngannou is aware of the challenge ahead of him and is ready to give his all on the 28th of October; he has been inactive for more than a year and has invested a lot of time and effort in strengthening his skills as a boxer.

Even though he is the heavy underdog for this event, it would be very unfair to call this a one-sided match in Fury’s favor. Simply because the sport of boxing is very unpredictable, and who knows, one punch is all it could take Francis Ngannou to give Tyson Fury the bitter taste of defeat.

Recently in an interview with Sky Sports, the former UFC fighter Francis Ngannou spoke about his massive fight with Tyson Fury and explained how he is ready for the challenge ahead.

"I know it's going to be very challenging for me," Ngannou said, as quoted by "I don't think I will be frustrated because I'm not going there just expecting to hit him easily. I know it's going to be tough, it might even be tougher for me than for him, which is the case because he has a lot of experience.

Ngannou further said: "I'm prepared for that, my mind is ready for that. I have that information, even in my training camp, I'm preparing for someone who is tough, not easy to hit, very well-rounded as a boxer, very durable.

"It's about a delivery system. You can have a biggest weapon but you also need to aim at the right target and to hit. We are shaping that skill to be able to deliver on the proper direction so we can get the result."
