Tyson Fury Secures Controversial Split Decision Win Over Francis Ngannou

Tyson Fury Edges Out Francis Ngannou in Controversial Split Decision Victory Tyson Fury claimed a controversial split decision victory over former UFC champion Francis Ngannou in their highly anticipated super-fight held in Saudi Arabia. The heavyweight boxing champion had to recover from a third-round knockdown to maintain his unbeaten record.

The clash went the full distance, lasting 10 rounds, with Ngannou impressing everyone with his remarkable speed, stamina, and precision in his boxing debut.

Fury secured the win with a split decision, as one judge scored it 95-94 in favor of Ngannou, while the other two judges gave Fury scores of 96-93 and 95-94.

The outcome stirred up controversy, with some commentators and MMA legend Nate Diaz expressing their belief that Ngannou should have been declared the winner. Gary Lineker also voiced his opinion online, describing it as a “robbery.”

On the other hand, boxing legend Lennox Lewis supported Fury’s victory but acknowledged Ngannou’s impressive performance. Many had doubted Ngannou’s ability to compete, considering it was his first professional boxing match and his first fight since January 2022. Fury, too, had been out of action for 11 months.

The fight between Fury and Ngannou is being hailed as one of the most significant combat sports crossovers since Conor McGregor faced Floyd Mayweather in 2017.

Speculations had suggested that Fury would face Oleksandr Usyk in a long-anticipated bout in December, but neither party confirmed the fight following tonight’s match.

The contest drew a star-studded crowd, including the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Mike Tyson, and UFC fighters Israel Adesanya and Kamaru Usman.
