- The former UFC heavyweight champion stepped into the boxing ring for the first time, facing off against the world-renowned Tyson Fury in a highly publicized battle of the baddest fighters.
Francis Ngannou has pocketed over 6.2 billion cfa (that is 10 million dollars) from his fight with Fury in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
Reports gotten from online media, mirror, confirm these figures, explaining Tyson Fury had stated the amount last September, with Francis Ngannou’s team, confirming the huge financial gain that comes with challenging the WBC champion.
Ngannou matched Fury strength for strength in a boxing ring for the first time in his career, but unfortunately fell short by virtue of a split decision from the judges.
The chairman of the Professional league of fighters Africa, however, made himself a rewarding sum, far better than his seven years earnings at the UFC.
Ngannou had reported earned $600,000, roughly three hundred seventy-two million, four hundred ninety-two thousand, for his biggest fight, the heavyweight title unification bout against CIRIL Gane at UFC 270. A pay disparity which had also contributed to him leaving the UFC.
