Former UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou was a guest with Joe Rogan on “The JRE MMA Show”. He talked a lot about his training and the way he prepared for the boxing match he has against the WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, although Fury's belt will not be in the game.
The fight will be 100 percent professional according to boxing rules and will take place in Saudi Arabia in about a month.
Francis Ngannou believes that the Irishman is cheating with his gloves, and requests several checks of his gloves
“Tyson’s gloves,” Ngannou said on the “The JRE MMA Show” with Joe Rogan.
“He’s very tricky with his glove. I think he’s cheating. I’ve heard a lot of complaints about his gloves, that his gloves have no protection”. “Even when he fought Deontay Wilder, he complained about that,” Ngannou said.
“Derek Chisora complained about that, and that’s what we’re talking about with the team, the U.K. commission and the gloves. Francis Ngannou trains with former boxing legend Mike Tyson and he has definitely improved his movement and boxing skills.
He thinks that if everything goes according to the rules and if Tyson Fury doesn't cheat with his gloves, he will knock him out. However, his interlocutor Joe Rogan tried to explain to him that Fury is not cheating with gloves, but that it is simply his style of fighting and boxing, so it seems to many that he is actually cheating.
“We’re going to get there, and we need every glove to get checked. You don’t tell me about this, commission. All the gloves get to be checked. If you want us to fight bareknuckle, let’s go bareknuckle, but don’t give me 10-ounce gloves, and he wears eight or six-ounce gloves because he has no protection”.
