Tyson Fury v Francis Ngannou Boxing Betting Tips & Predictions
Despite this being boxer versus martial art fighter, the WBC still claim this is an official boxing bout although Fury’s title will not be on the line.
That sentence doesn’t make sense. How can it be a sanctioned WBC bout without the title being on the line? Fury should have to defend it or drop it.
These farcical bouts are becoming the norm in boxing and getting quite tedious. Fury has always said it’s not about money, it’s about creating a legacy.
What a joke. Not defending his belt is not creating a legacy. What will he gain from beating a man who has spent 10 years in an Octagon and no time at all in a boxing ring?
I know money talks but do not try and fool the boxing fans by claiming this bout is not about making money.
Fury is undefeated as a professional and it finally looks like he will fight WBA, WBO & IBF champion Oleksandr Usyk next year.
What if Fury loses to Ngannou? No one will want to pay to watch Fury against Usyk then. It’s a massive risk, but I suppose that is okay if the money is right.
Ngannou is a good fighter in the UFC, but can he stay on his fight and keep up with Fury for 10 rounds. Fury will turn this into a circus and play around with Ngannou before knocking him out in the sixth.
A complete waste of everybody’s time.
