Francis Ngannou has been training hard for this fight; boxing experts and fans are relying on his lucky ‘power punch’, and we will soon find out if Francis Ngannou’s power alone can beat Fury’s unmatchable skill and experience.
Eddie Hearn on Francis Ngannou vs Tyson Fury
Recently on The MMA Hour, Eddie Hearn explained why Ngannou vs Fury is an irrelevant matchup and compared it to Conor McGregor vs Floyd Mayweather. “Yeah, for sure,” Hearn said, as quoted by mmafighting.com.
“When I spoke to him, I actually thought maybe he should take a couple of easier fights and build his credibility to that mega-fight. “When you actually see the fight, you’re going to realize very quickly as we did with Floyd and Conor, they can’t win, And that was a lot more competitive than this is going to be.
Yes, one-punch knockout power and stuff like that, but it’s boxing vs. MMA. It’s absolutely irrelevant”. “He’s done 100 percent the right thing, He’s got the max as quickly as possible, without anybody having to see it.
Hearn further said: Because he could go in a small fight for less money and you go, ‘You actually can’t put this guy in the ring with Tyson. It’s actually a huge mismatch.’ So the mystery of ‘Is it a mismatch? Does he punch as hard as everyone says? Oh he was once a boxer!’.
makes you tune in. So I think he’s played a blinder. Good luck to him. What a lovely guy, going to make a lot of money, good luck to him”.
