Kamaru Usman is happy for his friend Francis Ngannou for securing one of the biggest fights in the history of the sport. Usman knows the striking dominance Francis Ngannou has under his possession and believes he has one-punch knockout power that is strong enough to put his opponents to sleep and wish them 'night night'

Francis Ngannou is being trained by the heavyweight legend Mike Tyson, and it will be very interesting to see the impact his training has had on Francis Ngannou's boxing skills. Kamaru Usman is yet to make his return after losing the trilogy match against Leon Edwards; he could be there in attendance for Ngannou's match in Saudi Arabia.

In a recent interview, Kamaru Usman shared his honest opinion on Tyson Fury vs Francis Ngannou and talked about the strengths Ngannou has. "Obviously, Francis is not a full-time boxer, so it's not going to be different," Usman said, as quoted tmz.com.

"The mechanics are going to be a little bit different, but the one thing Francis has, God has blessed him with power. If he touches your head anywhere in this radius right here". "It does not matter. If [Francis] touches you, you might not wake up.

And so I give him that chance for sure. But when you're talking about a drawn-out 12-round boxing match on paper, I don't think Francis is as skilled or experienced to win that fight, but Francis has a great equalizer, and that is God-given power.

Usman further said: If he touches you, you will go to sleep. If you haven't noticed it by now, Francis is blessed with all the trials and tribulations that he's gone through in his life, he is blessed to still be here standing right now, and to have a fight like this, of this magnitude, the biggest fight in the world. If they can promote this thing the right way, it's an amazing fight!".
