Francis Nganou vs. Deontay Wilder IS HAPPENING!!?

An all-time explosive heavyweight boxing match is nearing its deal as UFC heavyweight
world champion Francis Nganou revealed that he is closing in to a Deontay Wilder
boxing match!
The Cameroonian left the MMA scene after a failed contract negotiations and chose a
boxing switch.
He has been very vocal about it and has his eyes on Anthony Joshua and Deontay
Wilder, but the latter is in deeper talks with him.
“Yes, we have had the conversation and at this moment, we’re more closer than with
anybody else,” he said in MMA Hour.
Nganou also predicted a bold on if the fight come into fruition.
“I think somebody will take somebody’s head off. I would just try [for it] not to be mine. I
think that’s probably what’s going to happen.”
Ngannou started boxing training at the age of 22, against his family’s initial opposition.
Ngannou stopped working out after a year of training because of an illness. He worked
a variety of odd jobs to make ends meet until deciding to move to Paris, France, at the
age of 26 in order to pursue a career in boxing. He was imprisoned for two months in
Spain for trespassing after arriving in Europe, though. Ngannou arrived in Paris without
any money, friends, or a place to stay. He first encountered Francis Carmont, who
introduced him to Fernand Lopez and the MMA factory, after he had spent time
homeless on the streets of Paris.
Ngannou, an admirer of Mike Tyson, first wanted to learn how to box; however, Lopez
recognized his potential in MMA and persuaded him to give MMA a try. Ngannou’s MMA
career was launched when Lopez handed him some MMA equipment and free use of
the facility to train and sleep.
With such background, Ngannou will finally has his chance to fight for the sport he first
loved. Will he be able to make a resounding boxing debut or will Deontay “the Bronze
Boomer” will welcome him in the sport in a brutal way he only know how?
