Francis Ngannou vs. Tyson Fury är inte längre en långsökt dröm. Matchen kommer nu till slut äga rum efter mycket om och men.

Kampsportsvärlden reagerar på Francis Ngannous drömmatch

Efter månader av debatter, diskussioner och osäkerhet så har den tidigare UFC-stjärnan Francis Ngannou bärgat en mega-boxningsmatch mot den de flesta anser är den främste tungviktsboxaren i världen; Tyson Fury.

Nyheten om 10-rondaren, som kommer gå under professionella boxningsregler den 28 oktober i Riyadh, Saudiarabien, annonserades igår av båda parterna och kampsportsvärlden har minst sagt mycket att säga om matchningen.

Nedan kan ni se kommentarer från profiler från bl.a MMA och boxningsvärlden:

Looks like it’s official! Who do you guys think wins? I’m happy Francis is getting a big payday but I can’t see him beating Tyson.

Ganan los dos, Tyson Fury la pelea , y Francia Ngannou la bolsa de su vida

Please don’t let this announcement distract from the fact that the name of Ngannou’s new fight promotion is …

GIMIK Fight Promotions.

Hard to find much room for criticism here. If you think Francis is going to get smoked, then cool, but the structure of the contest is pretty ideal for the fans.

— Mike Bohn (@MikeBohn) July 11, 2023

This moment was made possible by the fighter lawsuit that compelled UFC to put expiration clauses in fighter contracts at the time Francis Nagannou signed them.

When we think about what news actually matters in MMA and where the lion’s share of coverage goes, remember this day.

Mannnnnnn I’m so happy for my bro @francis_ngannou and @Marquel_Martin . Bet on yourself

— Anatomy of a Fighter (@WillHarrisAOAF) July 11, 2023

Mannnn, Francis did it! We can now all definitively agree he played his cards correctly, right? The bags have been secured.

— Nolan King (@mma_kings) July 11, 2023

Where those people at who kept saying Francis Ngannou was fumbling the bag and should go beg the UFC to take him back? Awful quiet now that he got that Tyson Fury fight.

— Ben Fowlkes (@benfowlkesMMA) July 11, 2023

Happy for Francis.

— Marcel Dorff (@BigMarcel24) July 11, 2023

We all know anything besides Fury-Usyk is BS. We know Francis has little to no chance in this fight. But you do have to recognize the unique opportunity here. You’ll never see a lineal UFC HW champ in this position again. It was now or never. Glad it *seems* to be full rules.

Expecting some absolute bangers to drop soon

All the criticism, all the BS Francis had to deal with, and he’s doing the damn thing.

Bravo, @francis_ngannou.

Francis Ngannou’s gamble paid off.

The man is getting exactly what he wanted from fighting out his UFC contract. This is wild.

— Danny Segura (@dannyseguratv) July 11, 2023

Power move from Big Fran. This and the PFL deal, that’s some pretty sweet negotiating since the UFC exit.

— Peter Carroll (@PetesyCarroll) July 11, 2023

The biggest joke ever in boxing!!! I am sorry it’s not boxing it’s circus @Tyson_Fury becoming from positive person in boxing to negative joker in circus

— Egis Klimas (@KlimasBoxing) July 11, 2023

Glad i never mentioned any fighters fumbling any bags gotta let these things play out ya know

— Billy Quarantillo (@BillyQMMA) July 11, 2023

That’s funny.

With Francis Ngannou vs. Tyson Fury now official, @mma_kings and I give our instant reaction to the Oct. 28 boxing match and discuss how much we should *really* care about this thing.

— Mike Bohn (@MikeBohn) July 11, 2023

Props to Francis Ngannou for taking on the toughest boxing test he could find. Tyson Fury looks like an awful matchup for him, and it seems we shall see.
