Tyson Fury claimed he will defeat Francis Ngannou because the latter’s “body is too good.”

On October 28, Fury and ‘The Predator’ are scheduled to square off in a ten-round professional boxing match in Saudi Arabia. Due to Ngannou’s lack of boxing experience, most people believe ‘The Gypsy King’ will emerge victorious.

With that said, the former UFC heavyweight has the power to potentially pull off the historic upset

Fury has been known to play jokes and troll the general public. Therefore, it was a perfect fight for the WBC heavyweight boxing champion to do an interview with Caleb Pressley of Barstool Sports, who tends to inject a sense of satire into his content. 

During their “Sundae Conversation,” Fury had this to say when talking about Ngannou:

“He’s not gonna last, his body is too good. I told you about these ripped bodies…He’s got too many muscles, and he looks too good. When I felt him like this, and he was all hard as I was feeling him. He was hard, and I knew he’s not gonna win because his body is too good.”

Tyson Fury talks about his physique throwing off some fans’ expectations 

Earlier this month, Tyson Fury and Francis Ngannou were in the same building for their first press conference and faceoff. Shortly after they came face-to-face, fans pointed out the significant difference in their physiques due to Fury sporting his patented questionable condition for a world champion boxer. 

During the same interview with Caleb Pressley, the Barstool Sports affiliate asked Fury if he ever considered getting in shape for a fight. ‘The Gypsy King’ responded by saying:

“Nope, never. That’s insulting in it to say that, get in shape. You know, a lot of these fighters, they want to be like bodybuilders and looked ripped and that. I always rock the dad bod, and, you know, the bald head, fat, white as anything, looked absolutely disgusting with my top off. And then when I knock out a good looking six-pack, it’s like, ‘What the f*ck, dude. What the f*ck just happened?’”

Over the last fifteen years, Tyson Fury has established a professional boxing record of 33-0-1, including wins against Deontay Wilder x2, Wladimir Klitschko, Derek Chisora x3, and Dillian Whyte. He last fought in December 2022, defeating Chisora with a tenth-round TKO.

Meanwhile, Francis Ngannou is coming off a unanimous decision win against Ciryl Gane to defend his UFC heavyweight title in January 2022. Since then, ‘The Predator’ parted ways with the UFC to pursue a massive payday, which he secured in his upcoming professional boxing debut against Fury.
