Hall of Famer and former UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov has suggested how much Francis Ngannou will receive for the boxing match against Tyson Fury, which was officially announced two days ago.
“He can make $50-60 million for this fight, so of course he should do it,” the undefeated Russian told Sky Sports. “I know that Francis’ life was very poor, and if someone pays you big money, go and take it if your goal is money”
At the same time, Nurmagomedov does not believe that the former UFC heavyweight champion has a real chance of winning this fight.
Tyson Fury is the best right now. His boxing is just on another level. If they fought in MMA, then of course, Francis would have a chance. If they fought in the UFC, Tyson wouldn’t have much of a chance, but in boxing, I don’t see anyone even touching his face. Maybe Oleksandr Usyk. Usyk will be the toughest test for Tyson Fury
Recall that the fight between Tyson Fury and Francis Ngannou will be held under the standard rules of boxing and will be held on October 28 in Saudi Arabia. According to available information, the WBC championship belt, owned by the Briton, will not be at stake, and the number of rounds and the inclusion of the result of the match in the official record is still in question.
