    I feel like he is going to get embarrassed. What’s your thought?

    Remember this once and for all. In boxing rules a boxer will beat a non boxer 100% of the time.

    Ngannou would get schooled.

    Fury makes him look very silly and unfit, I'd guess a TKO by rounds 5-6.

    Ngannou has a chance.

    Fury can get injured by tripping over something on his way to the ring, or sprain his ankle or break his leg before and during the fight.

    I mean it's not impossible. But I think Ngannou beating Fury would be like five times more of an upset than Serra over GSP.

    Can he ? Yes of course so can I!
    Will he ? Highly unlikely

    Extremely unlikely. Besides all the punches he would eat he would gas horribly if 6'9 Fury decides to play the clinch game again.

    Mma guys are not good at pure boxing ( ring, boxing gloves and rules). Only Anderson was remotely decent and he would have gotten destroyed by a guy like Andre Ward. Hell, many amateurs would have beaten him as well.

    Fury is an elite pro boxer. Ngannou wouldn’t last more than 4 rounds.

    Nope

    Deontay Wilder couldn’t do it and he’s essentially a much better puncher, let alone boxer than Francis.
    Francis does nothing better than any of the current top HW boxers, strip away any of his MMA skills and leave him with just punching with larger gloves on. Fury’s footwork alone would be too much for him.

    If this happens before there is no fight hence no chance. If it happens durign the fight Fury still wins

    lol wut? people talking like francis is a striking God or something. i didnt see any outstanding skills from him when he won the belt. he is basically a fast fiber low mileage tank with 4 ounce glove ko power. the difference between francis and fury is massive in skill department. this shouldnt even be a question around here. fury would straight up kill him in a boxing match. same as francis would murder fury in a mma match. apples and oranges. get the fuck over it.

    Why exactly wouldn't someone with zero boxing matches be able to beat the world champion? It doesn't make sense - everyone knows that having zero experience is extremely important in elite sports.

    Small punchers chance <1%

    Fury is too long and skilled at boxing. Ngannou would gas within 3 rounds and then even his punchers chance is gone.
