The ‘Gypsy King’ stole the spotlight at the pre-fight presser, where the conversation took a twist, shifting the focus to a potential clash with Oleksandr Usyk.
Fury boldly asserted that he would effortlessly conquer both Usyk and the ferocious Francis Ngannou, proving once again why he reigns supreme in the ring.
“I’d batter him into submission. Quite quickly as well. I don’t think that fight goes six rounds, no way.
“Everyone is overestimating this guy because of how he out-boxed a conventional fighter in Anthony Joshua, but Joshua isn’t what he once was. He has slid a long way in my opinion.
“And I’m not Joshua. I’m not some big, stiff guy who won’t let his hands go. I’d annihilate Usyk,” Fury stated.
If the fight with Usyk cannot be made, then it may be Ngannou. The former UFC heavyweight champion recently inked a deal with the PFL, allowing him the opportunity to box.
With that being said, this is what Fury had to say.
“Obviously I know I can beat Francis. As soon as I land one good, clean punch on him it’s over.
“The UFC, it’s totally different to boxing. Different (punching) technique as well and they don’t punch like the heavyweight champion of the world punches.”
Regarding the chances that the bout will actually take place, Fury outlined:”It’s an exciting match up and there’s definitely a realistic chance of myself and Francis fighting inside a boxing ring,” Fury
