    I really can't imagine Ngannou surviving in boxing with other HUGE opponents and those big gloves....for 12 rounds..Haha.

    5-6 rounds? You must have a very high opinion of Ngannou's boxing.

    Fury should come to MMA. Boxing is boring.

    If I wanted to watch boxing, I'd watch boxers do it and certainly Fury vs any ranked HW boxer would be a much better boxing match than Fury vs a 0-0 boxer like Ngannou. Heck Fury vs Jake Paul is probably a better match up

    He took Wilders punch and got back up. If you think there is a difference in their power then you need to question your assessment.

    Lol. Wilder has much better boxing skills. Ngannou throws one of his wild punches and misses then gets hit from a punch that will make Ngannou want to never box again.

    Fury probably has a better shot at beating Francis in MMA

    . Fury could have a stroke in the ring. There is always a chance, for any HW in the Top 100 even against a guy like Fury. But it would be the biggest upset in history.

    Ngannou would obviously have a substantially better chance at beating Fury in an MMA match, but I think Fury could still win. Ngannou isn't a grappler, and while he has decent, hard kicks they've never been his main form of offense. Ngannou wins by punching, and so even in MMA he'd fight in a way that would let Fury use his strengths.

    Specialists like boxers and high level jiu jitsu guys always have a chance to win in MMA, that's part of the beauty of it.

    thats not true. Wilder has more power than Ngannou, wether he is punching short or long range. If he has space, the power just becomes beyond compare. And Fury took those.

    Francis takes a nap inside 2 rounds.

    The guy got lit up by prime Stipe.

    No Francis can't beat Fury in boxing, just like Fury can't beat Francis in MMA.

    Ngannous hooks are nothing in comparison to Wilders, or Wladimirs punching power. They wouldnt bother Fury more than a hook from Dereck Chisora.

    Or one of the lights over the ring may fall on Fury. Earthquakes are also a factor.

    I don’t think Fury takes risks, he’d work him around the ring to tire him out first, then put the pressure on when he’s gassed.
