“Want some power from Gypsy King? I’ll give it to you!”
“Anytime, anywhere, anywhere!”
Ngannou replied: “I will take care of [Jon Jones] first then come after Fury. “
The Cameroonian won the UFC heavyweight championship this month and has long been linked with a cross in the boxing ring.
Dillian Whyte recently said Sky Sports about Ngannou: “I believe I can beat him in both styles. I can beat him in MMA and boxing. I don’t think he has anything special, like they want.
“The guy is scared, so if doing MMA makes him feel better. If we have a cage fight first, he could take it, but if we offer him a boxing match, then he might say, ‘ No no no “.
Fury is set to face Anthony Joshua to decide on an undisputed heavyweight champion this summer.
He tagged Joshua: “A big useless back. Not a real fighter. A hype, crossfit, bodybuilder job.
“AJ let’s make this fight happen!
“I’m going to kick your ass and there’s nothing you can do about it.”
“AJ, if you go three laps with me I’m going to stop around the corner because that’s how confident I am.”
Derek Chisora was supported to beat Joseph Parker by Bellator MMA star Michael ‘Venom’ Page.
“I had a fight with him,” Page said. Sky Sports. “You must love Derek!”
“He wanted to experience what it would be like [to be kicked]. He didn’t like it so I think he will stick with boxing!
“I don’t think Parker will want to go along with him. Similar to his fight against Anthony Joshua, I think he will backtrack.
“So it’s Derek’s job to cross his feet and corner him to land.”
“Derek is hitting hard and Parker won’t want to be there for those shots.
“If you’re drawn into a war with Derek, he’ll win this battle.”
