Tyson Fury has sent a message to Mike Tyson and Francis Ngannou.

Fury, the WBC Heavyweight Champion, is scheduled to take on PFL heavyweight and former UFC champion Francis Ngannou. The boxing match will take place on October 28 in Saudi Arabia. This will be Ngannou’s first pro boxing match.

Ahead of the big showdown, Francis Ngannou has brought in International Boxing Hall of Famer Mike Tyson to help him prepare. Footage of Ngannou hitting the mitts with Mike Tyson has been released, and you can watch the clip below.

“It’s an honor to be a part of your journey, my brother [Francis Ngannou],” Mike Tyson wrote. “Preparation and training to shock the world.”

Tyson Fury Sends Message To Francis Ngannou & Mike Tyson

Tyson Fury caught wind of the video and he chimed in on Twitter. “The Gypsy King” made it clear that he doesn’t think Ngannou has what it takes to dethrone him.

“It’s good to see you training hard [Francis Ngannou] and you’re going to need to,” Fury wrote. “It doesn’t matter if you’re being trained by the great Mike Tyson, Muhammad Ali or Bruce Lee. You’re going to get KO’d in the Kingdom.”

Fury is widely considered to be the best heavyweight in boxing today. His trilogy against Deontay Wilder won’t soon be forgotten, with Fury going 2-0-1 against “The Bronze Bomber.” Wilder’s career losses have only come at the hands of “The Gypsy King” thus far.

As for Ngannou, he’s hoping his punching power will be enough to take out the far more experienced Fury. Many are skeptical about Ngannou getting the job done since Wilder is also a feared power puncher who could not put Fury away. Still, Ngannou isn’t lacking confidence going into the boxing match, and it appears Mike Tyson is also backing “The Predator” to “shock the world.”
