Saturday, October 28th marks an extraordinary collision of combat sport titans in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, as the undefeated Lineal and WBC heavyweight world champion, Tyson Fury, squares off against the former UFC heavyweight champion, Francis Ngannou. This monumental showdown, following the launch of Riyadh Season, is set to determine the rightful claimant of the “Baddest Man on the Planet” title.
The battle will unfold under the established regulations of professional boxing. Three ringside judges will follow the 10-point must system. However, both combatants pledge to engage fiercely, vowing to secure victory through a decisive knockout.
The grand stage of Saudi Arabia’s capital will be the venue where “The Gypsy King” Tyson Fury and “The Predator” Francis Ngannou vie for the undisputed title of the Heavyweight King and the “Baddest Man on the Planet”.
Expect a clash of unprecedented scale, testing Fury’s reputed resilience against the world’s most potent punch, as recognized by the Guinness World Records. This face-off promises no mercy.
The highly-anticipated battle, among the most lucrative in combat sports history, is set to occur in a standard boxing ring, adhering to conventional boxing rules in Riyadh, the largest city in Saudi Arabia.
Tyson Fury, “When that bell rings, bombs away! People claim he’s the strongest puncher around, but let’s see his response when he takes a hit from the Big GK. I’m eager to step back into the spotlight. I’m set to demonstrate to the world that The Gypsy King is the preeminent fighter of this era, in an intense confrontation with another maestro of combat. Francis appeared tough when he stepped into the ring post the Whyte match, but none are as tough as me, a fact that will be illustrated emphatically on October 28. I express my gratitude to my promoters Frank Warren and Bob Arum, my manager Spencer Brown, and the team at Riyadh Season for making this remarkable event a reality. It’s bound to be a historic battle. Brace yourselves!”
Francis Ngannou countered, “I’ve waited for Tyson in the ring for three years. It was always my ambition to compete in boxing and against the finest. Having been crowned the undisputed MMA Heavyweight Champion, this is my chance to realize that dream and validate my claim as the baddest man on the planet. I express my gratitude to Riyadh Season and my team at 3Point0 Labs for their part in orchestrating this event. My message for Tyson is simple: he better exhibit his finesse in the ring because if my fist connects, he’s hitting the mat.”
