This top-level fight is slated for 28 October in Saudi Arabia, aligned with Riyadh Season, their annual fest of entertainment and sports. The WBC heavyweight titleholder, Fury, enters the fight scene with his belt, a testament to his prowess since 2020. His counterpart, Ngannou, takes a bold step from the octagon to the boxing ring for his debut fight.

The Gypsy King, Fury, will return to the scene for the first time after a stellar defense of his title against Derek Chisora. This fight took place amidst a roaring crowd of 60,000 at Tottenham Stadium in December 2022. The champ showcased his might, sealing a victory with a 10th Round TKO. Throughout his nearly 14-year career, Fury stands unscathed with a streak of 34 fights.

After leaving the UFC in early 2023 with the heavyweight champion title to his name, Ngannou’s last octagon appearance witnessed him overpowering Ciryl Gane at UFC 270, concluding with a unanimous decision in his favor. His record boasts of 17 victories with a mere 3 defeats over a decade-long career. Transitioning to boxing, the Cameroonian-French contender is all set for his Riyadh debut. Carrying forward his octagon experiences, Ngannou currently reigns with the ‘World’s hardest punch’ accolade since 2018.

Unbeaten British heavyweight sensations Fabio Wardley and David Adeleye are all set to lock horns in a make-or-break fight on Saturday, October 28. This 12-round thriller, featuring the brightest emerging talents, will significantly ramp up the excitement leading to the iconic fight between WBC & lineal heavyweight boxing world champion Tyson Fury and MMA’s lineal heavyweight champion, Francis Ngannou.

Ah, Riyadh! Not just known for its shimmering sand dunes but now also set to host what’s being dubbed the premier combat sports spectacle of 2023. A key component of Riyadh Season, a mega entertainment bonanza, this event showcases the raw power and agility that only the heavyweight division can deliver.

Not to be overshadowed, former WBO world champion Joseph Parker (32-3, 22 KOs), hailing from Auckland, New Zealand, is gearing up to fight Canada’s Simon Kean (23-1, 22 KOs). Meanwhile, Arslanbek Makhmudov (17-0, 16 KOs), another Canadian powerhouse, is set to defend his NABF title against Croatian pro Agron Smakici (19-2, 17 KOs). Each of these fights promises 10 rounds of adrenaline-fueled action.

, Moses Itauma, the 18-year-old heavyweight sensation (5-0, 3 KOs), waits eagerly for his yet-to-be-announced opponent in a special six-round fight.

Behind this grand spectacle stands a collaboration of boxing’s great promotional names: Queensberry, Top Rank, GIMIK Fight Promotions, and the Eye Of The Tiger team, promoting Kean and Makhmudov.

This lineup, topped by the Fury-Ngannou duel, will be available on TNT Sports Box Office.

Wardley from Ipswich, boasting a record of (16-0, 15 KOs), established himself as the English champion in 2021, later securing the British title. His recent win came over Michael Coffie this April.

Adeleye, London’s gem with a record of (12-0, 11 KOs), bagged the WBO European title earlier this year. This intense Adeleye-Wardley duel was fuelled further during a press conference in London when things, let’s say, got a tad heated. Some jabs, some red carpet tumbles, and poor Wardley ended up with a few souvenirs on his face.

Rewinding the clock, Parker achieved WBO glory in 2016 against Andy Ruiz Jr. Fast forward through some hard fights, he most recently celebrated 2023 victories against Jack Massey and Faiga Opelu. Kean’s journey includes a WBC International Silver championship in 2019 and a winning streak that features a victory over Eric Molina this March.

Lastly, Makhmudov’s boxing journey has been impressive. After grabbing the WBC Continental Americas title in 2019, he continued to collect belts and victories. In contrast, Smakici’s recent attempt for the European title against Agit Kabayel didn’t pan out, but he’s looking to bounce back.

The Fury vs. Ngannou spectacle can be accessed in the UK & Ireland via BT, Virgin Media TV, Sky, or online through either the TNT Sports Box Office website or app. A subscription to TNT Sports isn’t a prerequisite for purchasing this event.
