WORDS BEFORE THE FIGHT
Tyson Fury, WBC champion:
- I think he's a big fat sausage. What can he do against me? Absolutely nothing. It's like if a table tennis champion meets Djokovic in the Wimbledon final. Boxing is a gentleman's sport, a great sport. I will knock Ngannou out.
Francis Ngannou, former UFC champion:
- If I beat Fury, which of course I would like to do, I would give him a rematch. If he wins, I would like him to give me a rematch. And I think, to be honest, a fight with Fury is a better fight for me right now than a fight with Usyk.
Oleksandr Usyk, WBO, WBA and IBF champion:
- For Tyson Fury, this is a bread and butter fight. This is my opinion. I'm speaking purely from a boxing point of view. People say that Ngannou can get hit and Fury can get hit. Yes, he can do that. But how can you do that with a two-meter giant who has 20 years of boxing behind him? This is a guy who doesn't have a single round of boxing.
The Gypsy King turned out to be slightly heavier than the former UFC champion. Tyson showed a little over 125 kilograms on the scales. In turn, Ngannou weighed in at 123.3 kilograms.
As reported by OBOZ.UA, Tyson Fury asked to "let Usyk worry" about the fight against Francis Ngannou. And WBC President Mauricio Sulaiman set his condition for the British boxer to fight the Ukrainian.
