The ‘Battle of the Baddest’ will see former UFC heavyweight champion Ngannou compete in his first boxing fight against the undefeated Fury.

While Fury’s WBC belt is not on the line, he previously said he would not show his face in public if he lost, underlining how much the punch-fest means to him.

He told TNT Boxing: ‘I’m gonna knock him out inside six rounds. And shall I tell you how I’m going to do it?

‘Get on the front foot, high arm, sticking him with a punishing jab, 19, 20 stone in the face, boom, boom, boom, bust him up, swell his eyes out, and then feint, slip, bang! K.O. 

‘On the front foot, not running away. On the front foot, hand-eye, let him hit the shoulder, slip, slip, bang, slip, slip, bang. Down in a heap.

‘Listen, no one can take my power. Nobody. These heavyweights don’t have a chance.’

Ngannou looked amused as the WBC heavyweight champion acted out his plans and described in detail how he would take him down on October 28.

The MMA titan is being coached by Mike Tyson, who Mail Sport exclusively interviewed, for the fight.

In a retort, he said he didn’t believe what Fury was saying – but the Gypsy King insisted he was going to do what he promised. 

Fury said: ‘I’m like Neo on The Matrix. You better believe it. I’m gonna come out, nice, stiff, snappy jab, bang, doubling up, bang, bang, bang, slip, slip, slip, body shot, upper cut, jab, jab, feint, bang – right hand, game over.’

‘Wow. That sounds like the script for a movie,’ said Ngannou. He then turned Fury’s words against him: ‘As you said earlier, everybody has a plan until they get punched in the face.’
