Tyson Fury says he could still knock Francis Ngannou, even when he’s 15 pints deep.
The two fighters reignited their feud on Sunday following news of Dana White offering to make a fight between Fury and UFC icon Jon Jones.
But long before that WBC heavyweight world boxing champion Fury was more than flirting with the idea of locking horns with former UFC heavyweight world champion Ngannou.
“Francis Ngannou, I know you’re out of contract with the UFC,” Fury said in January.
“Wanna earn some big boy money? Come see the Gypsy King.
“Let’s do a big, big fight for the baddest MF on the planet.
“Let’s kick it up spicy, in a cage, four-ounce gloves, under Queensberry [boxing rules], and let’s have a badass referee like Iron Mike Tyson.
“Did I just sell that to the world?”
Ngannou has reignited this verbal sparring as he uploaded a video of him on the speed ball, which was captioned: “Anyway… I’ll be ready @TysonFury.”
Fury cheekily responded on Instagram: “I’ll have 15 pints [beer emojis] and still KO you big stiff tramp!”
Ngannou later said: “Stop talking, Tyson, and come try. I’m already doing you a favour using your gloves and your rules because [of] your limited skill set.”
Any alcohol involved in any bout between Fury and Ngannou would be interesting to say the least.
