It remains to be seen if Francis Ngannou can pose a threat to WBC heavyweight world champion Tyson Fury, but we can safely say that no door stands a chance at keeping ‘The Predator’ from coming in.
Weeks away from his highly anticipated pro boxing debut in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Ngannou found himself in a rather situation while trying to enter a shop. In the video clip, which you can see below, the former UFC star mixed up push with pull and somehow managed to shatter the entire front door with hilarious results.

Initially, the shop owner was left understandably infuriated by the damage, but once Ngannou explained who he was and, more importantly, that he would pay for the damages, the situation was quickly quelled with the two even posing for a picture together.

Francis Ngannou to Fight for the First Time in Nearly Two Years
On October 28, Francis Ngannou will make his long-awaited return to competitive combat sports when he straps on the eight-ounce gloves for a clash with ‘The Gypsy King’ in Riyadh. The bout will come nearly two years removed from his last appearance inside the Octagon where he bested Ciryl Gane to retain the UFC heavyweight title. Shortly after, Ngannou parted ways with the UFC in search of greener pastures.
He appears to have found exactly that having signed with the Professional Fighters League in May. ‘The Predator’ is yet to make his debut inside the PFL Smart Cage, but he is expected to turn his attention back toward the world of mixed martial arts once his bout with Tyson Fury is in the books later this month.
