Fury: "I can't wait to get back out there under the lights. I'm looking forward to showing the world that The Gypsy King is the greatest fighter of his generation in an epic battle with another master of his craft."
Ngannou: "I've been wanting to meet Tyson in the ring for the past three years. My dream was to always box and to box the best. After becoming the undisputed MMA heavyweight champion, this is my opportunity to make the dream come true and cement my position as the baddest man on the planet."
Fury will fight for the first time since he retained his title against Derek Chisora in front of 60,000 spectators at London Stadium in December 2022. Coming out of retirement, The Gypsy King put on a dominant performance, winning by TKO in the 10th Round. With a career spanning almost 14 years, Fury remains undefeated having fought 34 times.
His opponent Ngannou left the UFC in January 2023 as the reigning heavyweight champion at the time. His final fight saw him defeat Ciryl Gane at UFC 270 by unanimous decision, adding to his tally of 17 wins and only three losses during his 10-year career. In this transition from MMA, the Cameroonian-French fighter will make his first appearance on a boxing card in Riyadh. Ngannou will rely on his experience in the octagon to put him in contention. The former UFC fighter currently holds the record for the ‘world’s hardest punch’ and has held it since 2018.
