Dana White on Francis Ngannou’s performance
Dana White recently shared his thoughts on Francis Ngannou’s recent performance against Tyson Fury and spoke about corruption in boxing. “The fact that he went 10 rounds with Tyson Fury is crazy,” White said, as quoted by mmafighting.com.
“He just went 10 rounds with Tyson Fury, Conor [McGregor] made it 9 or 10 with Floyd, Anthony Pettis just beat Roy Jones Jr. – I know Roy is friggin’ 60 years old or whatever, but I don’t know what the hell is going on.
It’s crazy. “I don’t care, listen, these guys, at some point, everybody is going to move on. Everybody has to do what’s right for them and make money for their families, so whatever they’ve got to do, they’ve got to do.
White on corruption in boxing: Every time I get on the phone with one of these boxing guys, I go, am I out of my mind? These guys are all horrible to deal with.It’s not even the corruption – you can’t built a business off it,The key to having something is building a business.
When you talk about the NFL, the NBA, MLB, they took football, basketball and baseball and created a business out of it. That’s what we did with fighting, and it just can’t be done with boxing”.
