Tyson Shrugs Off Fury's Comments
Tyson has dismissed Fury's comments, stating that it's all just business. The former undisputed heavyweight champion made it clear that he is solely focused on the fight and sees his role as part of the business side of the sport. He told TNT Sports, "This is business, and he understands."
Tyson Believes in Ngannou's Potential
Tyson believes that Ngannou has the skill set to give Fury a real challenge in the ring. Despite never having boxed professionally, Ngannou's history in mixed martial arts and his knockout power make him a formidable opponent. Tyson stated, "I think he's gonna do very well… He's a real power puncher. Real fast for a big guy."
