‘100 million dollars in fight money!’ Francis Ngannou, “Tyson Fury, Deontay Wilder, Anthony Joshua, come out!”
Ngannou was unable to renew his contract after his contract with the UFC ended in December of last year. He is currently a free agent (FA). Ngannou was scheduled to defend against former light heavyweight champion Jon Jones, but the fight was canceled due to fight money issues with the UFC.
The UFC offered 8 million dollars (about 10 billion Korean won), but Ngannou demanded more than 30 million dollars (about 38.7 billion Korean won) and could not close the gap. In the end, Ngannou is looking for a way out in boxing, leaving the UFC.
Fury is the current world boxing champion. Fury is the world’s strongest boxer, holding the championship belts of the world’s top boxing organizations, including the WBA, IBF, WBO, and IBO. The match fee alone exceeds 50 million dollars (approximately 63 billion won in Korean currency).
Previously, Fury pointed out Ngannou and suggested ‘100 million won’ of fight money. Ngannou recently posted three fighters, including Fury, on his social media and demanded a confrontation. The message is that anyone can fight through boxing.
Wilder and Joshua are also champions, and boxing is gaining popularity by building a Fury and Troika system. Here, MMA’s representative heavyweight, Ngannou, is lighting the fire.
If the match between Nganoo and Fury is concluded, experts estimate that at least 50 million to 100 million dollars (approximately 126 billion won) of fight money will be guaranteed each. Ngannou’s ‘fusion’, which crosses MMA and boxing, is raising great interest in what results it will show. 먹튀검증
