Floyd Mayweather comments serve as Francis Ngannou warning to Tyson Fury

Tyson Fury has reportedly agreed to take on UFC champion Francis Ngannou in a hybrid fight following his victory over Dillian Whyte on Saturday night. But Floyd Mayweather’s comments after defeating MMA fighter Conor McGregor in the boxing ring in 2017 could serve as a warning to the Gypsy King.

Fury looked assured throughout his encounter at Wembley Stadium as he floored Whyte in the sixth round before the fight was brought to a halt. He then suggested he would retire from the sport. But current UFC heavyweight world champion Ngannou joined Fury in the ring and it was reported the duo would go head-to-head in a crossover fight.

Mayweather got in the ring with McGregor in Las Vegas for their hotly-anticipated bout and was outboxed for the first three rounds. But the American finally overpowered his opponent as he forced a 10-round stoppage.

And following the clash, Mayweather admitted he was “shocked” by what McGregor had offered in the ring. “He’s a hell of a fighter standing up,” Mayweather said. “It kind of shocked me. He’s a very awkward opponent and he’s a tough competitor. He was taking it.”

“I got offered to Wembley at home and I believed I owed it to the fans and to every person in the United Kingdom to come here and fight at Wembley,” Fury said. “Now it’s all done, I have to be a man of my word and I think this is it. This might be the final curtain for the Gypsy King. And what a way to go out. A big thank you to the United Kingdom.”

“I’m overwhelmed with the support. I can’t believe my 94,000 countrymen and women came here tonight to see me perform. I want to say from the bottom of my heart, thank you so much to every single person who bought a ticket in here tonight or stayed up late to watch it on TV.”
