Tyson Fury took to Twitter to call out UFC Heavyweight champ Francis Ngannou. He will be fighting Anthony Joshua in a two-fight series this year.
Fury’s fight against Joshua is one of the biggest sporting events of the year. However, it appears as though the Gypsy King is already planning his next fight.
Eddie Hearn of Matchroom Boxing previously spoke on the developments of the fight. According to him, contracts have since been agreed upon. It appeared as though Wembley would be the location for the first fight.

Since then, the Mayor of London has joined talks and given Eddie and his team the go-ahead. Sadiq Khan is a fan of Eddie and the sport and will be keen to finish by the July 24th deadline.
Interestingly, amidst all this, Fury has called out Francis Ngannou. In the caption, Fury claims that he will ‘smash’ Anthony Joshua and then ‘roast’ Ngannou as well. Francis Ngannou recently became the UFC Heavyweight Champion after beating Stipe Miocic at UFC 260.
Another Big Fight for Tyson Fury?
Tyson Fury is no stranger to big fights. His last fight against Deontay Wilder at MGM Grand, Grand Garden Arena, Las Vegas was arguably the biggest boxing event of 2020.
As such, it stands to reason that he would seek out the biggest opponents on the planet. Francis Ngannou is certainly that. The six feet four Cameroonian is one of the few fighters that could look Fury in the eye. ‘The Predator ‘ is also the record hardest puncher in the UFC as of now.
Naturally, Fury feels excited by the prospect of this which has then led to him calling out Francis. Furthermore, Fury is also seemingly confident that he will be able to dispatch Anthony Joshua not once, but twice over the course of the year.
Either way, it will be interesting to see how the future unfolds after the first Fury-Joshua fight. Unfortunately, there could be a situation where both the Champions are too busy defending their titles, effectively ruling out a possible fight.
