But ESPN were forced to issue an apology for the bad language from the UFC star

Fury flatlined former sparring partner Dillian Whyte with a beautiful KO

The WBC and UFC heavyweight champs were clearly excited by the prospect of fighting one another, so much so Ngannou swore before the American watershed.

He said: “We’re going to find out who the Baddest Motherf***er on the Planet is?”

A jubilant and fired-up Fury roared: “Good man, Francis!”

The interviewer quickly interjected and said: “We apologise for the language.”

Fury then bizarrely asked Ngannou about the size of his penis, saying: “Have you got a big corey?”

Ngannou was perplexed until Fury pointed between his legs, prompting the pair to laugh and briefly embrace.

Fury, 33, is looking forward to sharing the ring with The Predator, saying: “This is going to be a very special fight.

“Like never before seen in the history of our sport. We’re not talking about two light guys who are 140lbs.

“I’m 270, he’s 270lbs. So it’s going to be an explosive fight when it happens.”

Ngannou, who is out of contract with the UFC in December, added: It’s going to be a hybrid with different type of rules.

“MMA gloves in the ring kind of mixed up. Mixed up [and] a little different.”

Ngannou, 35, is currently embroiled in a contract dispute with the UFC as he wants to box as well as compete in mixed martial arts.

And he’s confident a crossover clash with Fury will come to fruition, telling BT Sport: “Definitely sometime next year. 2023.

“That fight will happen!”

“Because by the end of the year, to know exactly [where I stand], we’re going to sort it and get settled and ready to go.”
