Tyson Fury claps back at ‘easy work’ Francis Ngannou, who responds in kind
Tyson Fury didn't keep quiet about recent comments from UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou.
Fury, the WBC and direct boxing champion, took to Twitter Tuesday to respond to Ngannou's recent comments, which again showed interest in a possible fight. Ngannou told TMZ that he would welcome a boxing match with Fury.
"Absolutely," said Ngannou. “I'm open to it. Remember, boxing was my main dream and I still have the fire, the dream inside of me and I believe that at some point I'll take a step.
"I don't want to fight Mike Tyson, but I would like to fight another heavyweight boxer like Tyson Fury."
Now, a week later, Fury kept it simple in his response to the UFC heavyweight champion.
"@Mike Tyson, after beating up Anthony Joshua, I'm going to roast this guy too. Francis Ngannou, easy job," Fury tweeted.
And just an hour after Fury's tweet, Ngannou responded, tweeted a photo of Fury bleeding after his battle with Otto Wallin in September 2019, and wrote, "If this guy did this to you, what would I do?"

Ngannou, who is running a five-fight winning streak, defeated Stipe Miocic at UFC 260 where he won the UFC heavyweight title. He avenged a loss of decision for Miocic after falling short in 2018.
The Cameroonian has yet to be booked for his first defense of the title, but names like Jon Jones and Derrick Lewis have been linked as potential opponents. Ngannou has never played boxing professionally.
Fury is expected to face WBO, WBA and IBF heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua later this year.
