“I will have an MMA fight with Francis Ngannou.”

Former heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder (37, USA), who shares the popularity of the heavyweight division with Tyson Fury in boxing, proposed an MMA match to former UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou (36, Cameroon/USA).

Wilder recently posted on social media, “I want to fight Ngannou. I will do boxing once and MMA once.” Wilder is known as the best heavyweight boxer in America, having successfully defended the WBC heavyweight champion 10 times.

It’s the same martial art, but the rules are different from boxing and MMA. When fighters from both sides fought, it was usually boxed, which was disadvantageous to MMA fighters.

The fight between ‘Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor’, which gave 100 million dollars of fight money to ‘boxing genius’ Floyd Mayweather in 2017, was also conducted according to boxing rules.

At the time, McGregor fought hard without using kicking and grappling skills, but eventually knelt in the 10th round.

Ngannou recently opened his heyday, winning 6 consecutive wins (5 consecutive KO/TKO wins), but was unable to renew the contract due to confrontation with UFC President White over fight money. 스포츠토토

Instead, Ngannou is raising the mood by asking Tyson Fury, Deontay Wilder, and Anthony Joshua, who are currently called the trio in heavyweight boxing, to fight. Although the match may be unfavorable to Ngannou due to the boxing rules, fans are expecting him with his incredible punching power.

In the midst of this, Wilder’s proposed confrontation seems to buy enough fans’ attention. This is because fans have not seen many fights with MMA rules in a special match between boxing and MMA. In particular, it was even more regrettable because the world’s best match between champions such as Mayweather and McGregor did not proceed with MMA.
