Terence Crawford's Reaction to Fury Vs Ngannou Fight: One Word Says It All!
In an upcoming crossover Fury Vs Ngannou bout scheduled for October in Saudi Arabia, Tyson Fury is set to face Francis Ngannou, a former UFC Heavyweight Champion. However, the announcement of this matchup has not been well-received by boxing fans, who perceive it as a departure from the true essence of the sport. On the other hand, the boxing community is eagerly anticipating the welterweight bout between Terence Crawford and Errol Spence Jr., which is regarded as a significant clash between two top fighters.
The contest between Crawford and Spence represents a fight for legacy and promises an intriguing level of competitiveness. In contrast, the Fury Vs Ngannou bout is primarily seen as a lucrative spectacle that deviates from traditional boxing, leading many to believe it will be one-sided.
Crawford shares this sentiment, as he recently expressed his belief that:
“Ngannou stands no chance against Fury, giving him zero possibility of victory.”
It is worth noting that although the fight will be officially sanctioned and recorded on the fighters’ records, Fury’s WBC world title will not be at stake. The sanctioning body has granted him “special permission” to temporarily set aside his champion duties for this event.
Ngannou, known for his knockout power in MMA, will be making his professional boxing debut against Fury. He follows in the footsteps of Conor McGregor, who faced a similar challenge against Floyd Mayweather in 2017, ultimately being outclassed. Ngannou is reportedly seeking guidance from former heavyweight champions Mike Tyson and Lennox Lewis as he prepares for the fight on October 28.
In the Fury Vs Ngannou event that Ngannou surprises the odds and emerges victorious, he claims there is a rematch clause in place. However, if Fury wins as expected, boxing fans will likely anticipate negotiations between Fury and Oleksandr Usyk for a potential undisputed bout, assuming Usyk still holds the other three world titles.
