Boxing Champion Claims Quick Victory in Anticipated Crossover Bout

Tyson Fury has stirred up controversy among fans after confidently stating that he will defeat Francis Ngannou swiftly in their highly anticipated crossover fight. The WBC champion and MMA star are set to face off in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia on Saturday night, and Fury's remarks have left some fans less than impressed.

An Unlikely Comparison: Fury Likens Himself to Tennis Legend

In his bold statement, Fury compared the upcoming bout to tennis icon Novak Djokovic taking on a table tennis champion in the Wimbledon final. He declared that he will make the fight "nice and short." While some fans found his analogy amusing, others expressed their disappointment, particularly as they prepare to pay £21.95 to watch the event.

Fans React to Fury's Comments

Social media was abuzz with reactions to Fury's remarks. One fan criticized his marketing tactics, stating that it was a "terrible way to sell PPVs." Another fan humorously suggested that Djokovic would win 6-0, 6-0, 6-0 against a table tennis champion, highlighting the lack of interest in such a one-sided matchup. However, there were also fans who found Fury's analogy amusing and expressed their support for the British boxer.

Fury Bulks Up for the Fight

Ahead of the clash with Ngannou, Fury weighed in at a massive 19st 11lbs, significantly heavier than his weight of 19st 2lbs in his last fight against Derek Chisora. The British boxer has packed on half a stone to become a formidable force in the crossover bout, which is expected to set the stage for a final showdown with Oleksandr Usyk on December 23. Ngannou, on the other hand, tipped the scales at 19st 4lbs.
