Boxing promoter Eddie Hearn, like many, firmly believes that Francis Ngannou won against Tyson Fury and entitled what happened to Ngannou a 'robbery' Interestingly, Hearn thinks that Anthony Joshua has what it takes to end both Francis Ngannou and Tyson Fury, due to which he is interested in making a fight between Ngannou and Joshua or Fury vs Joshua.

Moreover, Hearn believes Fury vs Usyk is a dead match. Francis Ngannou clearly mentioned that his debut in the world of boxing wasn't a one-time affair – he looks forward to fighting in the boxing ring again. As for now, Ngannou will be focusing on his PFL debut; perhaps after 1-2 MMA matches, we can expect to see him back in the boxing ring.

In a recent interview with Boxing Social, Eddie Hearn shared his thoughts on Tyson Fury vs Francis Ngannou and spoke about what should happen next. "I'm baffled, really," Hearn said, as quoted by mmajunkie.usatoday.com. "Firstly, I feel like Ngannou was robbed.

Obviously, he scored the knockdown. No one actually did anything in the fight. The fight was a stinker. But Ngannou won the fight. I can't believe we're actually having this conversation. You're talking about a guy that has never boxed before.

And respect to him, because he was better than I thought. … Fury looked like he has never put on a pair of boxing gloves before in his life. I don't know whether he's shot, I don't know whether he didn't train, I don't know whether he was thinking about the (Oleksandr) Uysk fight.

He was absolutely awful". Hearn on Fury vs Joshua/ Ngannou vs Joshua: "Let A.J. go in there and end (Fury's) career, please, Or Ngannou has earned the right for a big fight. Let A.J. go in and knock Ngannou out inside three rounds.

Not a problem. Forget about Fury-Usyk – dead fight. No one's interested in that fight at all. I cannot believe what I was watching. Fury didn't even try. Ngannou is so tired, all he had to do was step on him".
