John Fury Hopes Ngannou's Open Workout Was Mind Games
Tyson Fury's dad, John, expressed his hope that Francis Ngannou's recent open workout was just a form of mind games to get into his son's head. The former UFC heavyweight champion is set to face the Gypsy King in a highly anticipated crossover clash in Saudi Arabia next month. Ngannou, who has Mike Tyson on his team, recently took part in an open workout, but John Fury had some harsh criticism.
Questions Raised After Laboured Performance
During the open workout session, Ngannou's somewhat laboured punching caught the attention of fans, leading to doubts about his chances of victory. A clip of a tired Ngannou jabbing and throwing a straight right hand to the body went viral, leaving John Fury unimpressed. "I hope he's kidding along and playing possum here," John said, expressing his concerns about Ngannou's performance.
Doubts about Ngannou's Chances
John Fury firmly believes that his son will make quick work of Ngannou if he fights the way he did during the open workout. "He won't get out of the first round," John confidently stated. He also called Ngannou's performance embarrassing and a disgrace, suggesting that if that's all he can do in a public workout, he shouldn't bother doing one at all.
Ngannou Confident Despite Being the Underdog
Despite going into his professional boxing debut as a significant underdog, Ngannou remains confident in his abilities. He sees this fight as an opportunity to fulfill his dream of boxing and solidify his position as the "Baddest Man on the Planet." Ngannou's warning to Tyson Fury? Dance in that ring, because if he lands a punch, Fury will be knocked out.
