  • Tyson Fury has called for “The Baddest Man on the Planet” title fight with Francis Ngannou
  • “The Gypsy King” set a few demands to which “The Predator” quickly agreed on

The talked-about super fight between Tyson Fury and Francis Ngannou seems to be edging closer to reality following the latest statement from the WBC heavyweight champ. Fury said he is very eager to face the former UFC heavyweight champion and would like to do it under specific special rules, a demand Ngannou has no issues with.

The Baddest Man on the Planet title fight

Speaking to Boxxer, Fury said if a unification bout with Oleksandr Usyk doesn’t progress, then he and his team will shift their focus on Ngannou. “The Gypsy King” then laid out his demands for the match with “The Predator” which he dubbed as “Baddest Man on the Planet” title fight. To make it in line with the title, Fury also wants Mike Tyson to serve as the referee.

“If the Usyk fight don’t get done, we’ll be looking at Francis Ngannou for the ‘Baddest Man on the Planet’ title,” Fury said in the interview. “I’m sure the WBC can make that up for me. What I ws thinking is we do four ounce gloves in a cage under Queensberry rules with a badass referee like Mike Tyson. That would be an epic night and I’m sure everyone would enjoy it as much as I would.”

“He’d keep me on my toes though because he’s a big lump, isn’t he?” he continued. “He can bang, he’s supposed to be the hardest punching human on the planet. I’m up for it. Listen, he can’t punch any harder than Wilder, anyway, can he?”

Ngannou wants it ASAP

It did not take long for Ngannou to respond. The former UFC champ swiftly agreed on every single demand Fury set before making it clear that he wants the fight to happen sooner rather than later with a simple, “What else?”

Fury successfully defended his WBC title last December when he TKO’d Derek Chisora. Since then, the unification bout with Usyk has gained traction but has yet to take a step closer to coming to fruition to this day.

On the other hand, Ngannou is still a free agent, having parted ways with the UFC last month. The Nigerian has been linked to a move to PFL shortly after but nothing is concrete yet at this point. On the side, Ngannou has been yearning for a huge-money fight with Fury.
