Fury looks Obese at the press conference of Fury vs Ngannou Showdown

Tyson Fury and Francis Ngannou recently came face to face for the first time since their upcoming Fury vs Ngannou ten-round professional fight was confirmed for October 28. The event kicked off with a red carpet press conference in London, where the two fighters exchanged words and posed for photos. Notably, Fury opted to go shirtless for the photo opportunity.

Fury, often referred to as ‘The Gypsy King,’ is the clear favorite in this Fury vs Ngannou crossover contest. It’s hard to find anyone in the fighting world, be it fighters or pundits, who is picking Ngannou to pull off the upset, especially given that this will be Ngannou’s first appearance in the ring following his successful UFC championship run.

Fury, who describes himself as a behemoth, typically weighs in the range of 260-270 pounds for his fights. His heaviest weight in his career was during his trilogy bout with Deontay Wilder, where he tipped the scales at a staggering 277 pounds. Notably, Fury experienced a significant weight gain during his hiatus from the sport in 2016 and 2017 before making a remarkable comeback to become a two-time heavyweight champion.

Fans who got a glimpse of the first face-off between Fury and Ngannou took to social media to share their observations. Some remarked that Fury appeared to weigh over 300 pounds, while others suggested that he seemed out of shape and may not be taking his training seriously for what many expect to be an easy victory.

In contrast, Ngannou, who remained dressed in a suit during the press conference, has a reputation for looking powerful and fit. For his most recent MMA bout, where he secured a unanimous decision victory over Cyril Gane, he weighed in at 255 pounds.

The much-anticipated Fury vs Ngannou showdown is scheduled for October 28 in Riyadh. Fans can expect more details on the Fury vs Ngannou event and the undercard to be announced soon.
