Mike Tyson and Francis Ngannou Reveal the Most Important Fights of Their Careers
“That was my real first fight [against Miocic], I lost that fight and then I think that, from that night, I understood everything,” Ngannou said. “If you ask me, so far, that was the best fight in my career.”Mike Tyson knew exactly where Ngannou was coming from, adding that his shocking upset loss to Buster Douglas in 1990 was the best fight of his career for similar reasons. On October 28, Ngannou will square off with current WBC heavyweight world champion Tyson Fury in a highly anticipated crossover clash emanating from Riyadh in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. “That’s how I feel about my fight with Buster Douglas,” Tyson added. “It was the best fight of my career. People won’t understand it.”Mike Tyson walked away from the sport in 2005 after amassing an impressive record of 50-6 and reigning as the undisputed heavyweight world champion for nearly three years. Today, Tyson is passing on his expertise to former UFC champion Francis Ngannou as ‘The Predator’ gears up for his first appearance in the squared circle.
