Dana White unconvinced by Francis Ngannou & Tyson Fury hybrid MMA fight speculation

We’ve been there before, so if current UFC Heavyweight Champion Francis Ngannou and reigning WBC Heavyweight Boxing Champion Tyson Fury get their own way, we’ll be there again. Just ask previous crossover combatants Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather, when their 2017 bout in Las Vegas became a license to print money.

Indeed, that will inevitably be the biggest motivation for both Ngannou and Fury, should the two get it on in the ring for a crossover encounter, as the best of MMA takes on arguably the top heavyweight boxer in the world. But when asked if it can and even should happen, UFC supremo Dana White believes it’s a “silly” idea.

Due to contractual obligations, Ngannou would of course need to seek backing from the UFC and White, although that doesn’t seem to be something the latter is willing to provide. During his appearance on the Pat McAfee Show which airs online at YouTube, White was pretty damning of the whole idea.

“F*cking waste of time, energy, and money,” said White of any proposed boxing match between Ngannou and Fury. “It’s silly, but I get it,” added the boss of UFC, clear that both fighters would only be in this for the money. This is quite a stark difference of opinion compared to 2017, when former two-division UFC champion Connor McGregor and boxing icon Floyd Mayweather were about to fight, accompanied with his own blessing.

The New Year was seen in by two veteran heavyweights treating their fans to a slugfest, as the betting favourite Luis Ortiz recovered from two knockdowns to defeat Charles Martin. At 42-years of age Ortiz showed that there is still plenty of fight in the old dog yet, delivering for oddschecker free bet users who’d backed him to KO the one-time Anthony Joshua victim. Even if his punch resistance appears to be on the wane, with Martin putting him down with an innocuous jab at one worrying point in the contest, Ortiz will still be given more than a puncher’s chance by bookies against whoever he happens to face next.

Ortiz has now set himself up for bigger and better fights in 2022, with some of the top contenders likely to fancy their chances against the veteran Cuban. Here we cast an eye over other elite level veteran boxers who may just be about to have an Indian summer to remember this year; putting father time back in his box for at least another twelve months.
