Tyson Fury’s Promoter Claims There’s A ‘Good Chance’ Francis Ngannou Rematch Happens In 2024
Frank Warren believes Tyson Fury vs. Francis Ngannou 2 will happen in 2024.
Fury and Ngannou boxed last month and it was expected to be a very one-sided fight. However, Ngannou had a lot more success than many thought, including dropping Fury.
Ultimately, Tyson Fury edged out a split decision, and since then, Francis Ngannou has been vocal that he wants a rematch. Although Fury will box Oleksandr Usyk on Dec. 23, Warren says there is a good chance the rematch will happen.
“I think there’s a good chance of that happening. I do,” Fury’s promoter, Queensberry Promotions founder Frank Warren, said Monday on The MMA Hour. “I don’t know [if it’ll be next for Fury]. It’s like jumping too far forward. Let’s get the big one [with Oleksandr Usyk on Feb. 17] out of the way first, and then we’ll see where we go. But I do think [it’ll happen]. Tyson told me that he wants the rematch, and I know Ngannou wants it, because after the fight we were out there, we met at His Excellency [Turki Alalshikh]’s house and we had quite a lengthy conversation. He’s a nice guy, by the way. He’s a really nice guy, good team around him, and I’m quite sure we’ll do it again.”
As of right now, the focus for Frank Warren and Tyson Fury is on Oleksandr Usyk. But, Warren says he believes Francis Ngannou can be a top-level boxer which is why he expects a rematch to happen.
years, and a lot of my guys have gone into fights, certainly with my fellow promoters in America — Don King and Bob [Arum] and so forth — as underdogs, and have won, and we’ve picked the right matches at the right time and won the fights.
“I think Ngannou will give any of the guys in the top 10 — and he’s ranked now, I think couple of the organizations have dropped him in there, and they should do it, he’s just gone the distance with the world champion — I think it’ll give all of them a problem, and there’s a couple of them there I think he could beat.”
With Fury and Usyk potentially locked in for two fights in 2024, whether or not Fury can get the rematch is to be seen.
