Tyson Fury Admits That He Only Spent 5 Weeks In Training for the Ngannou Bout

In a surprising turn of events, Tyson Fury has admitted to only spending five weeks in training for his bout against Francis Ngannou, contradicting his earlier claim of a three-month camp. The revelation comes after Fury controversially secured a victory over Ngannou in a crossover fight last October, with the Brit now preparing for an upcoming clash against Oleksandr Usyk.


Despite initially stating on TNT Sports that he was engaging in a 12-week training camp, Fury clarified that he was joking about the extended duration and confirmed that his actual preparation for the Ngannou fight was only five weeks. This admission has raised eyebrows, considering the intense nature of the heavyweight bout and the significance of the undisputed clash against Usyk, originally scheduled for December but now set for February 17.


Fury downplayed the importance of an extended training period, stating, “I’m sure we aren’t going to forget how to box, and it’s not a fitness competition.” When questioned about the apparent contradiction in his statements, Fury defended his approach, emphasizing that three or four weeks of sparring and one week of rest were sufficient for his needs.


Oleksandr Usyk, Fury’s upcoming opponent, echoed a similar sentiment, stating, “I can keep on boxing non-stop for five weeks.” Despite their occasional disagreements, Fury has maintained that there is no personal feud between him and Usyk, acknowledging the Ukrainian’s faith in God.


As the countdown to the February 17 clash continues, Tyson Fury’s training revelation adds an intriguing layer to the narrative surrounding the highly anticipated bout against Oleksandr Usyk.
