Fury’s Shadow Boxing Training Footage Fuels Ngannou Fight Rumors

Tyson Fury posted some footage of himself shadow boxing, as talks of a potential fight with Francis Ngannou gather steam. 

The ‘Gypsy King’ has not had an opponent since his win over Derek Chisora. However, Frank Warren recently confirmed that Fury’s next fight would be a ‘game changer.’

And with Oleksandr Usyk out of the running, Ngannou was the name being linked. And this was expanded on by Ariel Helwani who confirmed that an announcement was expected. 

“Tyson Fury x Francis Ngannou is expected to be announced very soon, per sources,”Helwani stated 

With that being said, Fury posted some footage of himself shadow boxing as he also used his head and knee. While it is imperative for Fury to remain in shape, it is not clear if an Ngannou fight would be an exhibition or a boxing match.

Either way, such a fight would not be enough to prepare Fury for an undisputed fight with Usyk. As such, there was a perception that an undisputed fight was unlikely. 

And this was the sentiment being expressed on social media.
