Fury called out by Ngannou as ex-UFC champion says ‘we all need this fight’
FRANCIS NGANNOU has called out Tyson Fury and said it is time to stop the talking.
Ngannou is a free agent after leaving the UFC and has set his sights on a lucrative move to boxing.
And Fury challenged the Cameroonian to a a hybrid bout, in the cage with 4oz gloves on but under boxing rules.
Ngannou, 36, is ready to accept and insisted the time is right to pit the heavyweight stars against each other.
He told Canal Afrique: “The next step could be that but, once again, everything has to be finalised.
“Let me remind you that Tyson Fury and I have been warming up on social media for more than two years.
“Obviously we all need this fight. It’s been long enough. Hopefully we have the possibility of dotting the i’s.”
Fury, 34, is currently in talks for the heavyweight division’s first four-belt undisputed title decider with Oleksandr Usyk, 36.
But he warned attention will turn to a blockbuster crossover fight with Ngannou if terms for the historic unification are not met.
Fury said to Seconds Out: “Francis Ngannou, I know you’re out of contract with the UFC. You want to earn some big boy money?

“Come see the Gypsy King and 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 Queensbury [rules] and let’s have a badass referee like Iron Mike Tyson.
“Did I just sell that to the world? If the contract doesn’t get signed with Usyk next for the fight of the century in boxing then we’ll do the Ngannou fight.”
