Oleksandr Usyk responds to Tyson Fury vs Francis Ngannou by calling out Conor McGregor.

In response to Tyson Fury’s upcoming crossover fight with Francis Ngannou after failing to agree terms with Oleksandr Usyk for their undisputed heavyweight title bout, Usyk has jokingly called out Conor McGregor for a fight at Wembley. Despite the anticipation of a collision between Usyk and Fury since last year, they have been unable to come to an agreement for the undisputed heavyweight world title match. Instead, Usyk will defend his three belts against Daniel Dubois next month, while Fury is set to face ex-UFC champion Ngannou in October.

When asked about Tyson Fury’s decision to take on Francis Ngannou in a boxing match, Oleksandr Usyk responded to Seconds Out, stating, “I have no ambitions besides one ambition – to fight Tyson Fury. I noticed that Conor McGregor has put on some significant weight. Hey Conor, why don’t we make a fight at Wembley?”

The bout between Fury and Ngannou is scheduled to take place in Saudi Arabia on October 28, under boxing rules, but Fury’s world title will not be on the line. It remains uncertain whether the result will be recorded on the fighters’ official records, as no sanctioning body has endorsed it yet. However, there will be three ringside judges to score the fight using the 10-point must system, the standard scoring criteria used in professional boxing. The number of rounds scheduled for the fight is yet to be clarified.

Tyson Fury stated, “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 Gypsy King. I can’t wait to get back out there and show the world that The Gypsy King is the greatest fighter of his generation in an epic battle with another master of his craft. There is no one tougher than me, and you’ll all see that in devastating fashion on October 28.”

Francis Ngannou, who has a record of 17 wins and 3 losses in MMA fights, signed a contract with the PFL, one of the UFC’s rivals, in May. However, this contract does not prevent the Cameroonian-French fighter from pursuing boxing. Ngannou, now 36 years old, initially had aspirations to become a professional boxer but shifted his focus to MMA upon arriving in Europe in his mid-20s.

“I’ve been waiting to meet Tyson in the ring for the past three years,” Ngannou expressed. “My dream was always to box, and to box the best. After becoming the undisputed MMA heavyweight champion, this is my opportunity to make that dream come true and cement my position as the baddest man on the planet.”

While Tyson Fury, with a record of 33 wins and one draw, is likely to face criticism for his choice of opponent, there is a precedent set by Floyd Mayweather, who achieved a 50-0 record as a boxer by defeating UFC superstar Conor McGregor in a fight that garnered over four million pay-per-view buys.
