John Fury on Francis Ngannou's open workout

In a recent Instagram video, John Fury said the following after seeing Francis Ngannou's open workout.

John Fury wants Francis Ngannou to avoid open workouts if he is always going to perform like that. "Just seen Francis Ngannou and Mike Tyson and that so-called trainer what's got the pads on, seen the open workout. I hope he's kidding along and he's playing possum here," Fury said as quoted by

"I hope that's a joke and intended to be a laugh. Because if it's not, he ain't got a prayer. He ain't got a cat in hell's chance. He won't get out of the first round. It's probably going to be Tyson's quickest knockout. But you know what? It's got to be kidology, that.

Fury further said: It's got to be full-on games. Because if that's what he's got — well, God help him, he'll get smashed to bits. That's all I'm saying, mate. That's embarrassing. If that's what he can do on a public workout, don't bother doing a public workout.

It's a disgrace".
