Ngannou claimed he'll be trained by Mike Tyson for a potential boxing bout. The UFC contender met the former boxing heavyweight champion to record an episode of his podcast.

Tyson showed Ngannou his famous 'peakaboo' technique after the show and shared the video on social media.

The No.2 ranked UFC heavyweight then issued a message to Fury.

"Spoke with Mike Tyson and he agreed to train me for when I fight @Tyson_Fury in the Ring. Don't be scared Fury. You called me out and now you'll have to live with it. #WakandaForever #UNCROWNEDKING," he wrote on Twitter.

The self-proclaimed ' Gyspy King' wasted no time in responding as he teased a career in MMA.

"Ill deal with you and all the other Mma heavyweights when I'm done with my boxing fights, It won't be long to wait! Then I'll show u how we roll," he said.

The Cameroonian-Frenchman then fired back at the lineal heavyweight boxing champion.

"You don't have to worry about other 'Mma Heavyweights' because I might just retire you. Tell you promoter to call @ufc #uncrowndedchamp."

Fury recently beat Braun Strowman at Crown Jewel in his competitive WWE debut and is expected to rematch Deontay Wilder in February 2020.

The 31-year-old has also revealed he has been in talks with Conor McGregor about making his MMA debut.

But Dana White believes Fury pursuing an MMA career "wouldn't end well".

"Fury's worked hard his whole life to become one of the top four [heavyweights] in the world in boxing," the UFC president explained.

"Why would you want to even come over and attempt this? I don't think it ends well for him. It doesn't make sense for his career."
