The Undertaker's priceless reaction to Tyson Fury being announced as winner vs Francis Ngannou
| Last updated
The Undertaker was among the stars watching ringside in Saudi Arabia to see Tyson Fury's victory over Francis Ngannou - and had quite the reaction to the bout's controversial outcome.
However, the judges decided in the favour of Fury, with the 35-year-old gaining scores of 96-93 and 95-94, while another judge scored 95-94 in favour of Ngannou.
Fury remains the World Boxing Championship (WBC) heavyweight champion, as his title was not on the line in the 10-round bout.
There are legitimate calls for a rematch owing to the close nature of the encounter and Ngannou dropping Fury to the canvas.
However, it appears that Fury now has his sights firmly set on taking on Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk for a unified heavyweight bout towards the end of this year or the start of 2024 with all the belts the duo hold between them on the line.
Former World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) star The Undertaker - whose real name is Mark Calaway - was among the celebrities watching the boxing bout ringside in Saudi Arabia.
When the referee announced that Fury was the winner, a camera turned to the ex-wrestler to show his reaction and he looked very surprised indeed to learn that Ngannou had lost.
And The Undertaker expressed how impressed he was with Ngannou's performance, adding that he believes Fury will have to train harder if he wants to emerge victorious against Usyk in the months to come.
Speaking to Octagon World, the former wrestler said: "I thought Ngannou really represented himself really well and it was definitely a close fight. I tell you what, Ngannou is the real deal.
"It was close. Francis knocked him down, that's close. I tell you what, it could have gone either way.
"I think Tyson may need to train a little harder for Usyk."
