  • He also seemed to try his luck with Kim Kardashian on X earlier on Tuesday
  • He is due to face Anthony Joshua in a huge heavyweight showdown on Friday 

Francis Ngannou appeared to awkwardly flirt with a reporter after his open workout in Saudi Arabia ahead of his heavyweight showdown with Anthony Joshua on Friday night.

Fans got the chance to see Ngannou get put through his paces on Tuesday evening as he demonstrated his punching power just three days out from taking on Joshua.

After he had finished his workout, the former UFC champion went to speak to the media, and seemed to take a particular shine to one female journalist.

When asked if he was planning to stick around to watch Joshua’s workout, Ngannou responded: ‘I have something else to do, which is you!’

The reporter, Olivia Buzaglo, laughed off Ngannou’s advances and later took to X to give her reaction to the incident as she posted: ‘Ahahahahaha ffs’ alongside some laughing face emojis.

Some fans have suggested that Ngannou may have been referring to needing to talk to more of the media when he said ‘you’, but his apparent flirty chat came just hours after he also appeared to try his luck with Kim Kardashian.

Kardashian, 43, posted a photo of herself pouting in the back seat of a car on Tuesday with the caption ‘miss u’.

Ngannou replied to the post on Wednesday with a meme of a man pointing at himself with his eyebrows raised as if to check if Kardashian was talking to him.

It didn’t take long for fans to pick up on Ngannou’s behaviour as they reacted to it online.

‘First Kim K now a DAZN reporter… Ngannou on demon time today,’ one X user wrote.

Others have also raised concerns that he may have lost focus on the task at hand this week, and believe it could harm his chances of beating Joshua.

‘First Kim K now this??? AJ in 6 rounds,’ a supporter added.

‘Between this and tweeting at Kim K, I’m afraid that Himgannou is no longer locked in. Joshua by KO,’ another agreed.

Ngannou was also written off prior to his boxing debut against Tyson Fury in October, but went on to knock the Gypsy King down before losing a narrow points decision.

Whether he is distracted this time around is up for debate, and he will not have Mike Tyson in his corner to guide him through the fight, but Ngannou remains adamant that he will shock the world again by stopping Joshua in Riyadh.
