A colossal event is on the horizon this weekend as boxing and MMA collide in a thrilling showdown in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. WBC and lineal heavyweight champion Tyson Fury will face off against former UFC and lineal heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou, marking a significant crossover bout.

While opinions on crossover fights may differ, the Fury vs. Ngannou spectacle, also known as the “Rumble in Riyadh,” unites two of the finest heavyweights in their respective sports. The long-awaited Fury vs. Oleksandr Usyk showdown may have taken its toll on Fury’s reputation, but his boxing skills remain exceptional.

In Fury’s words, “I’m solely focused on Ngannou at this point in my life. If I have to endure injuries in victory, that’s what I’ll do. My energy is directed entirely towards facing Francis, not Usyk.”

Ngannou made waves by leaving the UFC earlier in the year, despite being the promotion’s heavyweight titleholder. While it’s a daunting task for him to bridge the technical gap in his boxing debut against the undefeated Fury (33-0-1), Ngannou is arguably one of the most powerful punchers in MMA.

The upcoming event will put the structural integrity of the ring to the test, with nearly all undercard fights featuring heavyweight contenders. A notable clash is the one between Fabio Wardley and David Adeleye, two unbeaten boxers originally slated to compete for Wardley’s British heavyweight title. However, the overseas card prevents the belt from being on the line, making their fight a non-title bout.

Here’s the complete fight card for Fury vs. Ngannou:

  • Tyson Fury -1400 vs. Francis Ngannou +750 (Heavyweight)
