Many fight fans took to social media to express their skepticism after watching the training session. One viewer commented, "It ain't looking good, bruv."

Comparisons to Mike Tyson

Some fans even went as far as comparing Ngannou's skills to those of the legendary Mike Tyson himself. One fan noted, "Not a good sign that 80-year-old Tyson is twice as fast as Ngannou and has better technique." Another chimed in, "Mike Tyson looks like he would fare better than Francis Ngannou."

Fury's dad responds

Even John Fury, Tyson Fury's father, had a strong reaction when asked about the training session. He said, "I hope that's a joke. If that's what he's got, God help him, he'll get smashed to bits. That's embarrassing. It's a disgrace."

Ngannou remains confident

Despite the skepticism from fans and critics, Francis Ngannou is unwavering in his belief that he can pull off one of the biggest upsets in boxing history. The Cameroonian fighter, 37, sees this as an opportunity to fulfill his dream of boxing and solidify his position as the "Baddest Man on the Planet." Ngannou warns Tyson to be on his guard in the ring, saying, "Because if I touch him, he’s going to sleep."
