Tyson Fury is working hard to prepare for his upcoming fights with Anthony Joshua. He is admittedly open to fighting UFC heavyweight champ, Francis Ngannou.
Previously, the boxer had called out Ngannou on Twitter. In the caption Fury wrote that he will ‘smash’ Anthony Joshua and then ‘roast’ Ngannou as well. In an interview with ESPN, the ‘Gypsy King’ spoke about both potential fights.
“I’ll eat him up and spit him out, seven times a day,” asserted Fury. Whilst Fury is appreciative of Ngannou’s achievements, he feels that boxing is a ‘different world’. Moreover, Fury also speaks about potentially taking on Ngannou in the MMA.

“It’ll be ten times harder for him to come to boxing than if I go to MMA,” he claims. Furthermore, Tyson believes that he can be motivated to fight Ngannou. “I’d love to fight Ngannou.”
As of late, Tyson has been training for his two-fight series with Anthony Joshua. The first fight will happen in July whilst the second one is still in the works. Boxing promoter, Eddie Hearn has also confirmed the signing of the contracts.

A Busy Year Ahead for Tyson Fury?
Currently, the Gypsy King is having a perfect 30-0 undefeated record. He is also the holder of the WBC title. Naturally, he will have fighters like Dillian Whyte, Alexander Usyk, and Andy Ruiz Jr waiting to get their shot at the title.
Although he is scheduled to fight Joshua, Fury is open to any challenge, even from Ngannou. With both fights already confirmed for this year, it will be unlikely that Fury will entertain another bout. Hence, fans can only expect to see Tyson fight twice this year.
Naturally, Fury feels tempted by the opportunity to fight a UFC champion. However, the likelihood of all three fights happening remains low. As such, we will find out more only after the first Fury-Joshua fight.
