Tyson Fury is set to return to the boxing ring as he faces former UFC champion Francis Ngannou in a crossover bout in Saudi Arabia.
This bout has been highly anticipated since Fury’s victory over Dillian Whyte in April 2022, retaining his WBC heavyweight title.
While some fans expressed a desire to see Fury take on Oleksandr Usyk or Anthony Joshua, negotiations for those fights fell through.
Instead, Fury will compete against former UFC heavyweight star Ngannou under professional boxing rules.
The fight is billed as the ‘Battle Of The Baddest’ and will be contested over 10 rounds, but Fury’s world title will not be at stake.
The winner will receive the WBC’s new ‘Commemorative Riyadh Championship’ belt.
Date and Venue
The fight will take place on the 28th in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
