Hall of Famer and former UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping has shared insider information about the amount of the fee that Francis Ngannou will receive for his boxing match against British Tyson Fury.
“His fight with Tyson Fury is officially announced,” the Briton said in the next episode of his podcast. “It’s 12 rounds, professional rules, knockouts are allowed. And I heard that Francis received about thirty million dollars for the fight.
“God, I can only be happy for him,” said Bisping’s co-anchor, UFC light heavyweight Anthony Smith. “If he really gets thirty million, he will never have to do anything again. Thirty million is a life-changing sum. You’re set for a generation to come – you don’t have to do this shit anymore. It’s just great for him.”
The day before, well-known boxing blogger Jake Paul and sportswriter Ariel Helwani reported that the fee for the former UFC heavyweight champion would be eight figures, and Khabib Nurmagomedov suggested that the Predator would receive $ 50-60 million.
A few days earlier, it was officially announced that the boxing match between Tyson Fury and Francis Ngannou would take place on October 28 in Saudi Arabia. Despite the fact that the fight is declared professional, the WBC heavyweight boxing title belonging to the “Gypsy King” will not be at stake this time.
