In a recent YouTube video, Chael Sonnen shared his honest review of Francis Ngannou vs Tyson Fury. “Boxing is not a real sport,” Sonnen said, as quoted by mmajunkie.usatoday.com.
“That hurts me. That hurts me to say, but there’s no way to deny that. A man’s body of work deserves to be recognized, and it deserves to be recognized accurately, that is disgusting, what they just did to him.
Anybody would’ve been wise to predict that that was going to happen. There was no chance that boxing was going to allow him to come in and get that win if it went to a decision.This is a heartbreaking thing for me, not because of whatever weirdness I’ve got going on with Francis.
Sonnen further said: It’s a heartbreaking thing for me because my entire life, I have respected boxing, and to find out that boxing is fake, I don’t mean the decision was corrupted, you cannot be a real sport.
You cannot be by any means be a real sport. This is the second time I’ve seen the best in the world in boxing – the absolute best, in their prime, in boxing – get beaten up by a guy with zero experience”.
