Tyson Fury Asked Francis Ngannou If He 'Has A Big Corey', The UFC Champ Was So Confused


Tyson Fury Asked Francis Ngannou If He 'Has A Big Corey', The UFC Champ Was So Confused

Tyson Fury asked Francis Ngannou whether he has "a big Corey" and the UFC champion's reaction was so innocent.

The Gypsy King had just defeated Dillian Whyte in front of 90,000 screaming fans at Wembley Stadium when he invited fellow man mountain Ngannou into the ring to join him in the celebrations.

The duo, both heavyweight champions in their own respective sports, look set to fight in some sort of hybrid bout at some point down the line.

So when Fury shared the microphone with Ngannou, fans were expecting them to announce the clash.


They did discuss the potential super-fight, although the topic of conversation went in an entirely different direction.

"He's in great shape, look at the muscles on him," Fury said.

"He's a good looking chappy ain't he! Have you got a big Corey? Have you got a big Corey?"


To which Ngannou replied: "Huh? A big what?"

Fury then pointed down to his private parts as Ngannou looked completely and utterly baffled.

A priceless reaction.


The pair then shared a hug and instantly began talking business to promote their upcoming hybrid rules bout.

"This is going to be one very special fight, like never before seen in the history of our sport," Fury said.

"We're not talking about two light guys. I'm 270, he's 270 pounds. It's going to be an explosive fight when it happens."

Ngannou was also keen to "find out who the baddest motherf***er on the planet is".


"It's going to be a hybrid fight with a different type of rules," he added.

"MMA gloves in the ring, make something a little different."
