In recent years, boxing matches with the participation of mixed martial arts stars from the UFC and other organizations and boxers of various calibers have become more and more frequent. However, so far all attempts by immigrants from MMA to impose at least some kind of competition on professional boxers have ended in failure.
A couple of weeks ago, there were regular boxing fights with the participation of former UFC stars. Frank Mir lost by unanimous decision to Steve Cunningham, who had long ended his career, and video blogger Jake Paul, who had been boxing for several years, knocked out Ben Askren with almost the first power punches.
The current UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou has also stated repeatedly that he would like to have a boxing fight with one of the champions in the future. It seems that Tyson Fury is ready to give him this opportunity.
“This is a message to Francis Ngann, the guy from the UFC. Do you want the Gypsy King’s money? You know where you can find them. Do you want to feel the power of the Gypsy King? I’ll arrange it for you, anytime, anywhere. I can beat you seven days a week and twice on Sundays, big ugly bum! ”Said Tyson.
