Francis Ngannou tries to goad Tyson Fury with Man United claim as he poses with shirt and meets Erik ten Hag


The former UFC heavyweight champion was recently in Las Vegas and he attended Manchester United’s pre-season friendly game against Borussia Dortmund, which they lost 3-2.

Ngannou, who has an upcoming fight with Fury, posted a picture wearing a Man United shirt and footage emerged of him meeting the manager, Erik Ten Hag.


Fury is a huge Man United fan and so Ngannou took the opportunity to make a cheeky dig at his heavyweight rival.

“@manchesterunited’s favorite heavyweight boxer is in the building [winking face]. Can’t wait to watch the match tonight in Vegas,” Ngannou said on his Instagram.


On October 28 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, Fury and Ngannou will meet in the ring under boxing rules.


“As soon as that bell goes, it’ll be bombs away!” Fury said about the bout when it was announced.

“This guy is supposed to be the hardest puncher in the world, but let’s see how he reacts when he gets hit by the Big GK [Gypsy King].”

Meanwhile, Ngannou commented: “All I will say to Tyson for now is he better dance in that ring because if I touch him, he’s going to sleep.”
