In a fusion of boxing and MMA supremacy, the “Battle of the Baddest” is set to take the global sports stage by storm. On October 28, 2023, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia will witness an epic clash as WBC heavyweight boxing champion Tyson Fury squares off against former UFC Heavyweight Champion, Francis Ngannou.
This highly-anticipated crossover match comes after a series of events including Ngannou’s prolonged interest in boxing, his subsequent exit from UFC due to contractual disagreements, and an in-ring face-off with Fury. The fight not only bridges the gap between two of the world’s most dominant combat sports but also promises to be a monumental showcase of raw power, skill, and ambition. The full card will feature five fights in total.
For those who can’t hop a flight to Saudi Arabia, you can still watch the show live without cable on ESPN+
