Cristiano Ronaldo has joined in on the hype surrounding the upcoming fight between Tyson Fury vs Francis Ngannou.
The Portuguese professional footballer appeared in a promo video for the crossover fight that features WBC heavyweight champion Fury against former UFC heavyweight champion Ngannou.
The video begins with Fury vs Ngannou being shown dominating the headlines in the newspapers.
Before it cuts to Ronaldo at a press conference and he is asked: “What do you think of Francis’ chances against Fury?”
“Next question,” Ronaldo replies, as the video goes into training compilations of Fury and Ngannou.
The fight is set to take place under boxing rules in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, and so it would not be surprising if Ronaldo is in attendance on fight night, as he now plays football for Saudi Arabian team Al Nassr.
And Ronaldo has shown that he enjoys attending these bizarre boxing crossover events, as he previously went to the Jake Paul vs Tommy Fury fight, which also took place in Saudi Arabia.
While Ronaldo may not be willing to comment on who he thinks will win, Fury is the big favourite going into the fight.
But, Ngannou has the secret weapon of having employed former undisputed heavyweight world champion Mike Tyson as his trainer.
And ‘Iron Mike’ acknowledges that the pair have a tough task ahead of them, as he said: “Listen, you’re going to see he’s been constantly improving, and I’m very proud of him to take this whole ordeal and perspective.
“He’s fighting the greatest fighter in the last… maybe the greatest fighter ever. I’m looking forward to that, and I’m so proud of him to take this step and do the impossible, so to speak.”
