Tyson Fury, who is the WBC heavyweight champion, will fight against the strong Frenchman and former UFC champion Francis Ngannou in a 10-round pay-per-view match Oct. 28 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
Tyson Fury is a big fan of Mike Tyson
Everyone already knows that Tyson Fury is a big fan of Mike Tyson.
His father John Fury is also a big fan of "Iron Mike", he has repeatedly said that he is the best boxer of all time. John Fury also named his son WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury after Mike Tyson. However, now Mike Tyson trains his opponent Francis Ngannou and it is certain that the Irishman will not have an easy job.
However, Fury said that he was sorry because his idol trains his opponent and expressed his desire to be in his corner. “I think that it’s sad, actually,” Fury said in an interview with Sky Sports. “The man that I’m named after, a legend, has to go against me, for one, and then come out as a loser, for two, having lost to a man he was named after.
I think it’s sad and I think that he should be in my corner, not the losing corner.
“But business is business ,and I understand that it’s strictly business. No matter what he teaches this fella, no matter how much boxing training he does or whatever, everyone’s got a plan until they get punched in the face.
It remains now for the current champion Tyson Fury to prove himself in the match against Ngannou, and for his idol Mike Tyson to see that no mma fighter can beat a boxer on his field. “I’m not sure who said that, but I know that’s true.
They’ve all got plans until they get smacked in the mouth”. as quoted by BoxingJunkie. “I don’t know – I must have said something to offend him,” Fury said. “I haven’t spoke to him, but it must be that I’ve outdone him, longer-reigning champion than he was. Maybe he’s upset about that. I don’t know”.
