MMA – Francis Ngannou wants to test himself against the best boxers before retiring.
Ciryl Gane himself recognized it, he has never seen someone as powerful as Francis Ngannou. The current “baddest man on the planet” presents frightening statistics. Of his sixteen victories, twelve were obtained by knockout. And few are his opponents to have survived the first round. Ngannou usually only needs one hit to send them to the mat.
While his contractual situation with the UFC becomes more complicated, the Cameroonian could soon find himself a free agent. An improbable hypothesis, but well and truly topical, even more if he does not win against Gane on January 22.
If Ngannou were to leave the UFC in this way, many would like to see him in boxing, against the current best heavyweights. The interested party has never hidden his love for boxing. It is in this sport that he dreamed of making a career before crossing paths with Fernand Lopez.
A dream he always has in the corner of his head. Speaking to TMZ Sports, the “Predator” assured that he would not retire before making a boxing match.
“I don’t see how I could retire without having boxed,” he said. “Tyson Fury, Deontay Wilder, I would like to test myself at their level. At the end of the day, it’s just a matter of throwing punches and having a good distribution system to send those bombs. And I’m sure if I deliver my own punches well enough I can do some damage. “
