Tyson Fury vs. Francis Ngannou Results & Highlights: 'The Gypsy King' Stays Undefeated

The boxing and MMA community were ready to see what would happen when former UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou made his boxing debut against Tyson Fury. The event occurred in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. 

 Known for his dangerous knockout power in MMA, “The Predator” tried to shock the world by finishing “The Gypsy King” in the ring.

Most professional fighters in both MMA and boxing believed WBC Heavyweight Champion Tyson Fury would trounce Ngannou in their bout. “The Gypsy King” had faced tougher competition, including knockout artist Deontay Wilder, yet is undefeated with 33 wins. However, the debuting heavyweight showed that you can’t count him out. 

The fight was very close, as Ngannou stunned the audience with his boxing ability. In the third round, the former UFC Heavyweight Champion dropped Fury and had him hurt for the rest of the round. However, the WBC Heavyweight Champion was able to survive and did just enough in the judges’ eyes to get a split decision victory. 

In the co-main event,  Fabio Wardley and David Adeleye put their undefeated records on the line in a heavyweight clash. Wardley was able to get the TKO victory after the referee felt Adeleye couldn’t continue in the seventh round. 

The win earned Wardley the British WBO European, WBA Continental, & Commonwealth Heavyweight Championships.
