    I respect Ngannou for saying he wants to translate to pro boxing. He'll make a lot more money with boxing and he really deserves it. He's a cool guy and i like him and he made me a lot of money against Stipe last weekend.

    But it isn't a good idea. He'll get seriously hurt in boxing. He's a horrendous stricker technically. He's all power and athleticism. In HW boxing it doesn't matter as much as in MMA. The elite guys will really hurt him. He has no chance.

    Who cares if he will lose. He will lose with a massive paycheck and be set for life.

    Ngannu is one of the least inoffensive and respectable guys in combat sports. There's only one reason the savages on this site hate him.

    Sounds like he’s angling for a big payday and honestly I can’t blame him. It’s a well known fact that the UFC has been actively suppressing fighter pay for years. I doubt he’s delusional enough to actually believe his wide caveman punches will make him a serious threat in boxing.

    Boxing doesnt need a Wilder's clone.

    Him versus Wilder would be a boxing purists wet dream.

    Fury has probably never even seen Ngannou fight anyway.

    Wilder has thrown far more jabs than Ngannou has, check the first Fury v Wilder fight and show me one Ngannou fight where Francis has matched Wilder`s jab output.

    I like Ngannou and I'm happy he became champ. But he'd get wrecked in boxing. I'd like to see him fight Lewis if the Jones fight doesn't happen.

    But if it is strictly for the money, for a cash out, it might be worth it. It depends on his priorities. The problem is that McGregor got stopped but he was still standing and the optics were not so bad. It was light punching Floyd.

    But at HW Ngannou could get slept badly and that's going to linger in people's minds.Still, with a huge payday, he could ride off into the sunset. His story of coming from Cameroon is insane so I can understand if it's purely a money decision.

    I like Ngannou he's improved massively as an MMA fighter but crossover is pointless, Joshua and Fury would destroy him at boxing and equally he'd destroy them at MMA.

    what’s there to see? Ngannou swinging ? He saw enough of wilder.
