Former double UFC champion Daniel Cormier apologized to Francis Ngannou for advising the Predator to forget about pride and resume negotiations with the world’s strongest league as soon as possible, because he did not believe in his fight with Tyson Fury.
“First of all, I’m sorry, Francis,” Cormier said in a recent episode of his ESPN analytics program. “But can I ask you a question? Do you have to be a little naive to go out into the world like that and know your worth to such an extent that even when it gets completely dark, stand your ground and say, ‘This is going to happen to me anyway’?”
“He will make more money than he ever imagined in his entire life. They fight in Saudi Arabia, so Francis and Tyson Fury will make a lot of money. This is an incredible turn of events for Francis Ngannou and I am extremely happy for him. I am happy that I was wrong in this situation, and I am glad that he will be paid so much ”
The day before, it was officially announced that the boxing match between Tyson Fury and Francis Ngannou will take place on October 28 in Riyadh, the capital of Saudi Arabia. Despite the fact that the fight is not declared an exhibition and will be held under standard boxing rules, the British WBC heavyweight title will not be at stake.
