The Fight Is Taking Place On October 28th In Saudi Arabia
I back Ngannou 100% in this face-off of champions… – Mike Tyson
Sound the boxing news alarms; Mike Tyson will assist Francis Ngannou with his training camp for the upcoming clash and the Cameroonian’s debut pro-bout versus Tyson Fury. I guess the undefeated heavyweight champion of the world will be shaking in his boots amid this revelation.

Having shared the ring with some of boxing’s greatest to ever do it, including Evander Holyfield, Lennox Lewis, and Frank Bruno, the boxing rumors about Tyson’s fight knowledge are true and what he could potentially bring to the table inside any fight camp.

However, Tyson has claimed that he doesn’t have the patience to train other fighters in the past, and although Francis possesses scary fight-ending power in the octagon, making your pro-debut versus the heavyweight champ isn’t likely to end well.
Maybe, just maybe, the weed-smoking era of Tyson has assisted him in finding that patience he previously didn’t own. But the reality is, Ngannou isn’t going to peak-a-booing after a few lessons with the former heavyweight champ.
By bringing Mike Tyson into his training camp, I think Francis Ngannou believes he’ll be bobbing and weaving overnight and delivering the peak-a-boo style of Tyson we know from the 80s against Tyson Fury.
The reality is he’ll probably become a stoner. pic.twitter.com/KYN2RDtbZQ

I don’t want to come across as some hater because Ngannou has achieved unfathomable heights during a short professional mixed martial arts career. But we cannot lie to ourselves ahead of this bout; this contest isn’t close skill-for-skill. And it’s not like Fury hasn’t dealt with God-like power before (Deontay Wilder)—the key difference being those past successes were fights against a legitimate boxer.
When questioned about training Ngannou, Tyson said: “It’s no secret I back Ngannou 100% in this face-off of champions. He has one hard punch, and it’s game over when it lands. I look forward to working with Ngannouu and supporting his transition from the octagon to the boxing ring. The key will be combining his energy and combat skills into his punches and using his agility to move swiftly around the ring, then delivering the knock-out blow. We’re here to win.”
Ok, Mike, LOL, you almost sound convincing. But, by all means, collect that check, and please continue to hype Ngannou up so we can bet online and receive less juice on Fury’s money line.
Seriously though, I don’t care if Zeus, Thor, Goku, Muhammad Ali, Mike Tyson, Floyd Mayweather, and God himself are joining Ngannou’s fight camp, he owns a puncher’s chance of outclassing Fury, and it’s a very minute one at that.
That said, Ngannou isn’t stupid; his decisions to leave the UFC and join PFL while accepting a fight with Fury have been strictly for monetary gain. The man isn’t bothered about legacy and how combat sport purists perceive him. He will grab the bag before the biological clock bends him over. And you know what, fair f*cking play, mate, do your thing.
