Yet, Tyson did not argue that Ngannou deserved the victory. The only few comments he made in this regard were around the fact that it was a closely contested fight against the greatest fighter. Francis Ngannou is a former UFC heavyweight champion who knocked down Tyson Fury in the third round of their highly anticipated matchup. Notably, this was Ngannou’s debut in professional boxing while Tyson Fury is the WBC heavyweight champion. Ngannou definitely defied expectations of a one-sided contest.

Regardless, Tyson Fury ultimately scored the victory via split decision. However, Mike Tyson expressed his optimism for Ngannou’s future. Ngannou remains undeterred by the loss, believing he won the fight, and requested a rematch. However, Fury’s next challenge will be against Oleksandr Usyk for the undisputed heavyweight championship.
