Tyson Fury and Francis Ngannou to clash in Riyadh



This is going to be an epic showdown.

Fight fans in Saudi Arabia are in for a wild ride because Tyson Fury, the WBC heavyweight champ, is stepping into the ring with none other than MMA superstar Francis Nganno. Taking place on Saturday, 28 October, in Riyadh, Fury and Ngannou are going full-on fight mode. With three judges ringside and the 10-point system, it's going to be a clash of titans that fans have been dying to see. 

This event is going to be an epic showdown. Ngannou, the ex-UFC heavyweight champ, is diving headfirst into the world of boxing, even though he's got no pro record in this game. But both, Ngannou and Fury, are itching to go toe-to-toe in the centre of that ring, ready to unleash hell.

For Fury, this fight is about more than just the title - it's his chance to show the world that he's the undisputed king of the ring. Also known as the "Gypsy King" he is not holding back. In fact, he said: "As soon as that bell goes, it'll be bombs away! This guy is supposed to be the hardest puncher in the world, but let's see how he reacts when he gets hit by the Big GK."

Ngannou is pumped up for this fight too. He's been dreaming about squaring off against Fury in that boxing ring for three years and got a burning desire to take him down. He even said: "If I touch him, he's going to sleep". Now that's a tall claim.

The stakes couldn't be higher because the winner gets the ultimate title of the "Baddest Man on the Planet." And both these fighters are dead set on etching their names in the halls of combat sports greatness with an all-out battle where skill, power and sheer determination collide. 

And since the fight's going down as part of Riyadh Season, it'll be like adding a sprinkle of extra grandeur to this already impressive event. Fury and Ngannou's reputations and legacies are on the line so you better believe they're going to give it everything they've got to secure that sweet victory. So who's ready for some heart-pounding action? We know we are.
