Francis Ngannou set to make TEN TIMES more against Tyson Fury than last UFC bout
| Last updated
Francis Ngannou's fight purse details for his blockbuster clash against Tyson Fury have emerged and he's set to make TEN TIMES more than his last UFC bout.
He left the company with the undisputed UFC heavyweight title as he pursued a boxing bout against Anthony Joshua, Deontay Wilder or Fury.
The 36-year-old will get his wish as he will take on the undefeated Brit on October 28 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, in a fight that will be contested under the official rules of professional boxing, with three judges ringside adopting the 10-point must scoring system.
And Ngannou is in line to pocket a career-high purse of £6 million, which is TEN TIMES more than his last UFC purse.
He earned a base pay of £600,000 when he took on Gane at UFC 270 back in January 2020.
'The Predator' will be looking to do what no boxer has done by beating Fury, who is supremely confident ahead of their monstrous meeting.
"This guy is supposed to be the hardest puncher in the world, but let's see how he reacts when he gets hit by the Big GK," said Fury, referring his 'Gypsy King' nickname.
The Cameroonian-Frenchman added: "I've been waiting to meet Tyson in the ring for the past three years
"All I will say to Tyson for now is he better dance in that ring because if I touch him, he's going to sleep."
Fury or Ngannou - who takes it? Let us know.
