Tyson said, “He isn’t a combat novice; he is a world champion. He knows how to compete when the bell rings, but the key will be combining his energy and combat skills into his punches and using his agility to move swiftly around the ring then delivering the knock-out blow. We’re here to win.”


Interstingly, Tyson Fury was named after Mike Tyson himself. Both Tyson Fury and his father have appeared on Mike Tyson’s podcast. However, it was the former UFC world heavyweight champion, whom Tyson sided with. Ngannou was thrilled to have a legend like Tyson in his camp.

Ngannou said, “Bringing Mike Tyson into my training camp is one of the best decisions I can make to prepare for Tyson Fury in the ring at this year’s Riyadh Season. Mike Tyson is an idol of mine in the sport. His experience and boxing IQ will be important to honing my technique under his guidance to win this super-fight.”
