“The F in Fury stands for Fraud” Fans react after Ngannou’s controversial defeat to Tyson Fury by split decision


Combat sports fans on Twitter are all saying thesame thing about Francis Ngannou’s controversial defeat to Tyson Fury last night.


Francis Ngannou lost to Tyson Fury in the battle of the baddest by split decision, a decision which has left many fans shocked.


It was Ngannou’s first-ever boxing match, and his performance was nothing short of wonderful. He even scored a knockdown on Tyson Fury and dominated quite a few rounds. Combat sports fans believe the former UFC Heavyweight champion was the rightful winner yesterday, not Fury.


The final results were:


95-94 Ngannou.

96-93 Fury.

95-94 Fury.


The British former IBO super-middleweight world champion, Chris Eubank Jr., is one of those who have broken ranks. He scored the fight in Ngannou’s favor.


“Watching from ringside, I thought Ngannou won the fight. It was close, but he was the aggressor, landed heavier shots, and scored a knockdown,” he wrote on Twitter.


“Fury deserved to lose after having so much trouble against a man who has never boxed before… too much time filming Netflix specials, not enough time in the gym, I’m guessing. Unlucky Francis.”
