Former UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou will have to rematch Tyson Fury if the Cameroonian manages to do the impossible and beat the Brit in the boxing ring in October.
“Yes, there is a rematch clause in the contract,” the Predator said in the next edition of the MMA Hour program. “If I beat him, a rematch is mandatory. If he beats me, I don’t know for sure. Let’s see how things turn out. That’s why I have to win this fight. I have to do my best to make this revenge happen.”
However, regardless of the outcome of the fight with the world boxing champion, Ngannou’s next fight after that will be in the PFL league under the rules of mixed martial arts.
“The second fight will take place after the debut in the PFL, which is scheduled for early next year. February or March – we are still discussing the timing with the leadership of the league “
Also, the Cameroonian confirmed the information that the ten-round boxing match will receive professional status, and that the WBC heavyweight championship belt, owned by the Gypsy King, will not be at stake.
Recall that the duel between Tyson Fury and Francis Ngannou will take place on October 28 in the capital of Saudi Arabia, Riyadh.
