Francis Ngannou Wants $30 Million To Box – Says Ali Abdelaziz

According to MMA manager Ali Abdelaziz, Francis Ngannou, the ex-UFC heavyweight champion, is asking for a sum of $30 million in order to participate in a boxing match.

Ngannou and the UFC ended their relationship after a long disagreement over the terms of his contract. After attaining his goal of being let go from the UFC, he desired to pursue a career in boxing.

Ngannou is eyeing a few well-known names for his boxing debut, with Tyson Fury, Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder being mentioned. This is despite having no professional boxing fights previously.

Ngannou is looking for a purse that is on par with the biggest boxing stars such as Deontay Wilder and Canelo Alvarez.

And yet, Ngannou’s last UFC victory over Gane earned him a mere $600k, even though it was the highest amount of all the fighters on the card.

So, in reality, is he pricing himself out of a payday by demanding an unrealistic amount? Well, that is how the fans saw it on social media.
