Here’s Mike Tyson giving a few pointers to UFC superstar Francis Ngannou on how to fight Tyson Fury … and the video is awesome!
So, why is this happening???
Remember, Fury has been teasing a move over to MMA — he’s apparently dead serious — and he even called out Ngannou as a potential opponent.
“Who’s the heavyweight champion of the world in the UFC? The American-Croatian, Stipe Miocic. I’ll fight him in a heartbeat, no problem. Or, Francis Ngannou,” Fury said.
“Any of the heavyweights they’ve got, I’m not afraid of any of them. I’m the Gypsy King. I’m a boxer, but I’m one badass motherf**ker.”
So, when Ngannou met up with Mike Tyson to appear on his ‘Hotboxin’ podcast recently — Mike decided to run the heavyweight fighter through a few moves to help him out.
Ya gotta watch the footage … 53-year-old Tyson sticks, moves and sticks again — the guy clearly still has explosive power and skill. Even the footwork is still super impressive.
Will Ngannou get a chance to unleash his new moves on Fury? UFC honcho Dana White told us it’s “possible” Fury could step in the Octagon … but unlikely.
Still, Ngannou is clearly curious about a potential fight — and with everything in combat sports, if the money’s there it’ll probably happen.
