Francis Ngannou also recently making his intentions clear on switching to boxing “Its always been down the line , this is something that am not taking my eyes off,”
“This is going [to] happen either way. Even if I stay… If, or when, the UFC and I finalise a deal, the boxing part has to be in it. I can’t see myself retiring without boxing.
“I would like to test myself to their level. It’s not the same sport, but I’m the champion, so I’m in the top in this division.
“At the end of the day, it’s just about throwing hands, throwing punches, having a good delivery system to throw those bombs. I’m sure that if I deliver my own punches pretty good, I can [do] some damage.”
