UFC superstar Francis Nganou has challenged Tyson Fury to fight again as he considers switching to boxing.
Ngannou suggested that it’s only a matter of time until he swaps the octagon for the squared circle and has bigger plans as he looks to “do some damage” against the top heavyweight.
The defending UFC Heavyweight Champion has outlasted the undefeated Fury once again and would love to lock horns with Deontay Wilder.
Ngannou told TMZ: “It’s always been down the line. It’s something I can’t take my eyes off of.
“It’s going to happen either way. Regardless, when the UFC and I finalize a deal, boxing has to be part of it because I can’t see myself retiring without boxing.
“Tyson Fury, Deontay Wilder. I want to test myself to that level. It’s not the same sport, although I’m the champion, I’m at the top of the division.
“At the end of the day, it’s like trained hands, trained punches, a good delivery system to make the bombs and I’m sure if I deliver my punch, that’s great, I can do some damage. “
Nganou has been vocal about his desire to face British superstar Fury in the near future.

And Cameron’s coach Davy Cooper, 35, believes he can end the Gypsy King’s undefeated streak.
Cooper has previously said: “Tyson Fury is the best boxer in the world right now.
“Tyson is difficult for any heavyweight because of his qualities, speed, boxing ability, good defense, confidence and swagger. Tyson is real and Tyson is a tough fight for anyone in boxing.
“But Francis can certainly fight any heavyweight over time and with a little modification in training. He can certainly do it because Francis has power.
“However with a boxing glove the power will drop slightly compared to an MMA glove.
“Because an MMA glove only holds 4 oz while a boxing glove is 10 oz, it makes a difference. A lot of little intangible things.
“Of course he can box and of course he can definitely beat someone like Tyson Fury.”
