reasoning Ngannou: “I don’t even know… First he retired, then he came back, then he wanted to fight Usyk… I don’t know what he’s thinking now, what he’s planning. But I’ll find out soon. Now is the right time to move on to concrete steps, because we did not have such an opportunity before. It’s time to find out.”

Ngannou named a few more names: “Priority is Fury. Next on the list is Anthony Joshua and then Deontay Wilder.”

Meanwhile, the popular British veteran Derek Chisora ​​(33-13, 23 KOs) announced his readiness to fight the Cameroonian: “I’m trying to agree on this fight. And I want to do it in boxing and MMA.”
