Francis Ngannou has received great appreciation from the striking Coach Dewey Cooper. In an interview, he discusses Ngannou’s incredible win over Stipe Miocic. Furthermore, he also discussed future potential opponents for the heavyweight champ.
Naturally, Dewey indulged in the talk of Tyson Fury. “Francis could box any boxer out there,” he says. Speaking about fighting Tyson Fury, he adds, “It would take some serious training, we’d have to change the training a lot.”

Coach Dewey also reveals that Francis would have to go into a boxing format and focus on anaerobic activity to beat Fury. In their boxing days, Dewey and his crew have won a lot of titles.
Among the more obvious opponents like Jon Jones and Derrick Lewis, there is also boxer Tyson Fury. Interestingly, Fury has called out Francis via Twitter. In the caption Fury claims that he will ‘smash’ Anthony Joshua and then ‘roast’ Ngannou as well.
Previously, Ngannou revealed on Mike Tyson’s podcast that he would ‘love’ to fight Fury. Fury proceeded to call out Ngannou in the midst of his preparations to fight Anthony Joshua. He will be fighting Anthony Joshua in a two-fight series this year.
Who will Francis Ngannou fight next?
Francis Ngannou became the UFC heavyweight champion last month. Subsequently, he beat the previous champion Stipe Miocic at UFC 260. Francis claimed the victory over Miocic via KO\TKO in the second round.
Since then, there have been speculations regarding his next opponent. For the longest time, Jon Jones seemed like the most logical option. However, the UFC has also been suggestive of Derrick Lewis.
Interestingly, Tyson Fury’s call-out seems to have piqued his interest. Moreover, Fury also seems confident that he will be able to dispatch Anthony Joshua not once, but twice over the course of the year. Following this, the proposed bout would take place.
Either way, it will be interesting to see what the future holds. Unfortunately, it is a possibility that both Champions are too busy defending their titles. As a result, their timings wouldn’t match and a fight might not happen.
