Tyson Fury vs Francis Ngannou confirmed by Eddie Hearn? Exploring Anthony Joshua’s promoter’s disclosure on highly anticipated bout

Earlier this year, there was significant speculation about a potential fight between Francis Ngannou and Tyson Fury, with discussions taking place between the two fighters.

Recently, boxing promoter Eddie Hearn has hinted at the possibility of this highly anticipated bout once again, which has generated a lot of excitement among boxing fans.

Tyson Fury vs Francis Ngannou rumors

Ngannou still has a desire to explore his skills in boxing. During his time as a free agent, he contemplated several potential opponents, including Andy Ruiz and Anthony Joshua. However, Fury has consistently been his top priority and the most desired opponent for Ngannou.

Following Ngannou’s challenge, Tyson has stated his desire to fight the MMA heavyweight as well. The two fighters have had heated verbal exchanges but there haven’t been any formal conversations about a future matchup.

Fury has brazenly threatened to defeat Ngannou numerous times, heightening interest in a prospective confrontation between them. They’ve exchanged several fiery tweets this year as well. 

Eddie Hearn’s take on Tyson Fury’s next fight?

As the boxing world is super excited regarding this potential bout, Eddie Hearn, too, discussed this matchup. Anthony Joshua’s promoter thinks this can happen and he’s hopeful. 

“Yes, I believe so, this is what I’ve heard. It will be an exhibition apparently, no knockdowns or anything. I don’t know, I’m only telling you what I’ve heard.” Hearn said.

The Cameroonian-French fighter fighting The Briton while still under his UFC contract was previously thought to be unfeasible. However, things have changed. This year, Ngannou can take part in boxing contests thanks to his relocation to the Professional Fighters League (PFL).

Currently, there’s no bout fixed for either Fury or Ngannou. The British heavyweight boxer recently shared a video of his workout during a training session teasing a serious announcement soon.
