Tyson Furyheavyweight world champion, defeated the former Cameroonian UFC champion this Sunday Francis Ngannou at the Boulevard Hall in Riyadh (Saudi Arabia).
The Cameroonian amazed the world. He put Fury, one of the best pound-for-pound on the planet, in trouble and even sent him to the canvas in the third chapter. Ngannou made it clear from the first exchange that he had not even come on vacation to Saudi Arabia Nor was he going to settle for just taking his check.
It had nothing to do with him Mayweather-McGregor from years ago or the recent fights of other MMA fighters with content creators. The Cameroonian boy dreamed of being Mike Tyson while he was working in a mine and was faced with the opportunity of a lifetime. She didn’t want to waste it and was close to ringing the bell.
Ngannou, who was making his professional boxing debut, came out to put pressure and take over the center of the match. Fury, with the plasticity that characterizes him, kept the Cameroonian at bay with his leading hand. He pulled, feinted, and threw his hand outside of his guard.
The former UFC champion was more risky from the second chapter onwards. He closed the distance quickly and landed good blows on Fury’s waterline. Ngannou’s complexes seemed to be fading. It would not be until the third that he would stand up Boulevard Hall de Riyadh.
