This weekend, Tyson Fury is gearing up for a unique showdown against former UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou, venturing into the boxing ring in a crossover event. Although Fury’s WBC heavyweight title won’t be up for grabs, his reputation is at stake as he faces Ngannou, renowned for his incredible punching power and making his boxing debut. The bout is confirmed to be a 10-round match, affecting both fighters’ professional records.

While traditional boxing enthusiasts may view this match as a detour from Fury’s pursuit of an undisputed title fight against Oleksandr Usyk, it marks a remarkable journey for Ngannou. Born in Cameroon and working in a sand quarry during childhood, he later lived on the streets of Paris until he discovered MMA a decade ago. Ngannou was the UFC champion but chose to forgo a new contract, following his initial dream of becoming a professional boxer.
