Mike Tyson gave Francis Ngannou tips on how to fight Tyson Fury when they met back in 2019.

At his famous Tyson Ranch, boxing’s iconic former undisputed heavyweight champion welcomed the MMA star who now, almost three years on, is the UFC heavyweight champion.

The pair recorded a video together, which Ngannou posted to call out Fury.

In the clip, Tyson shows Ngannou tactics to take on boxing’s current WBC heavyweight champion.

He said: “With Fury, he punches long.

“So when he punches long, you’ve gotta go with with short punches to the side.

“Hit him around, with power punches to the body.”

Ngannou is set to defend his title against Cyril Gane at UFC 270 on Saturday night.

If he comes through with a victory – which is by no means a guarantee – then speculation will likely once again arise surrounding a potential future boxing match against Fury.

Ngannou has admitted this is unlikely to take place until 2023 at the earliest, though the pair exchanged words on social media as recently as this month.

Fury welcomed the idea, posting a hypothetical fight poster on social media.

Fury captioned the tweet: “Who would like to see me fight this beast – boxing rules, UFC gloves? @DanaWhite @Francis_Ngannou.”

Ngannou replied: “How about MMA rules with boxing gloves? I can do you that favour.”

To which Fury responded: “You want to come in to my world, calling me and Deontay Wilder out to a boxing match.

“What I can guarantee [is] you would be knocked out and also paid your highest purse to be so! So have a think.”

Ngannou concluded: “After I handle business on Jan 22, I’ll fight you under any special rule set you want. In a ring, an octagon or a phone booth.”
