Francis N’gannou might win an Oscar award this year 2021. 🥇
He provided a glimpse into his role in the film, where he was called upon to do something that, in his day job, would result in a 5-minute time out and potential deduction of points ( fighting ).
“That’s the craziest thing that I ever seen,” said Francis Ngannou of the filming experience. “Man, I had to punch somebody in the nuts. Aye listen, I did it the first time and they said ‘Listen man, people know you are the hardest puncher in the world, but it wasn’t hard enough.’ And I was like, ‘Are you kidding me?’ funny right ?🤣🤣
The heavyweight champion will appear alongside America/world celebrities like AEW star Darby Allen, Shaquille O’Neal, and comedian Eric André. The film will make its theatrical release on October 22nd, 2021 titled “Jackass 4”.
It will be the second time we’ll see Francis Ngannou will be om screens in 2021 as an actor. He appeared in Fast & Furious 9, which was released to cinemas last month. He seems to have enjoyed his latest foray into Hollywood as he gushed over his love for the film 300 which he calls an inspiration for overcoming the extreme odds of his early fighting career.
Here is what he said at an interview 👇
“I was 22 the first time I ever put on gloves, and once I put them on, I knew that I was destined to be a professional fighter,” wrote Ngannou. “But I also knew that I had no money — and that meant I had zero opportunity. I didn’t know how to begin to find a way out. But then I saw 300 — the movie about 300 Spartan warriors holding their ground against a 300,000-strong army. That first time, it was almost like a spiritual experience. Nothing would ever be the same for me after that. Yes, it’s just a movie, I know that. But it still taught me something very important: If you are fighting against the odds, you must believe you are going to win.”
