Alex Pereira on Jon Jones, Francis Ngannou vs Tyson Fury

Jon Jones vs Cyril Gane is a match that is attracting a lot of attention. Many expect one of the best matches. Alex Pereira spoke about that match and expectations; “I think Jon Jones is really coming to dominate,” Alex Pereira said in an interview with MMA Fighting.“It’s never easy, but I think this fight will be much harder than if he had fought Ngannou.

Ngannou is stronger and would want to trade punches with Jon Jones, and Jon Jones is very experienced, has a great defense, so I think Jon Jones would beat Ngannou [easier]." Pereira believes that Jones will win against Gane.

“This next fight [with Gane] is a bit harder for him, but I also think he wins. It’s a bit more difficult because [Gane] is smart, and a bit more scared in a good way, not to come trading with Jon Jones, which makes him a more difficult fight”.

Ngannou should hold a match against Tyson Fury in boxing. Pereira thinks that this is not a good idea. “It depends if he’s fighting the elite,” Pereira said. “[Boxing against] Tyson is hard.

It’s suicide. … There are other guys for him to start. [He can go] one step at a time. If he really wants to fight those guys, then he’s just thinking about the money. I don’t if that’s the case. But to say ‘I’m going there because I want to become champion,’ that’s hard." Alex gave an interesting example; “[Boxing] someone who can defend from his punches, [Ngannou] would get tired,” said Pereira.

“I”ll give you a dumb example: If you ask someone who’s never trained in in his life to go against someone experienced and tell him to hit as hard as he can to knock him out, he’ll gas out in three minutes, and then one weak punch will knock him out since he has no defense anymore and can barely stand still. To me, knowing how to defend yourself is the the most important thing”.
