FRANCIS NGANNOU decides whether to appeal his contentious defeat by boxer TYSON FURY after fans accuse him of being robbed


Following calls to appeal his split decision defeat to Tyson Fury in their contentious fight in Saudi Arabia, Francis Ngannou has made a definitive decision.

The former UFC heavyweight champion stunned the world by knocking Fury out in the third round and then going the distance with him.

At the end of the fight, many thought Ngannou had done enough to win, but Fury was proclaimed the winner by the judges, prompting supporters to accuse him of being “robbed.”

When asked if he would appeal the ruling, Ngannou said, ‘Who am I gonna appeal to? What is the British Boxing Commission? I don’t stand a chance. That, I believe, is just another form of humiliation.’

Ngannou has now set his sights on a rematch with Fury, hoping that Oleksandr Usyk will stand aside from an undisputed meeting with the ‘Gypsy King’ to let the fight to go place.

‘The rematch is what I most want next,’ he remarked.

‘Right now, I feel like I have a lot of alternatives, but I want to choose properly, and I would go for the rematch first.

‘My best boxing scenario is to wait for Fury. If Usyk can move aside and let me fight Fury, then I’ll let them do anything they want. I’ll go back, maybe do some MMA fighting, and then come back with some boxers.

‘I’m thinking of fighting twice next year, either in February or March.’
