Why was Fury troubled... Did Ngannou scew up and take too many chances and not hold his guard as well as he did against Fury?

Probably shouldn't have kept going after 2nd knockdown

Fury didn’t even train for the fight, came in fat, nothing but disrespect and he lost the fight.
Joshua used his skills, moved around the ring, reflexes on point, couldn’t be hit. Meanwhile Ngannou stood in the middle of the ring and waiting. Easy picking

He should enjoy his spoils and not get that noggin rattled again. From sand mines to making tens of millions. Maybe beat up some stiffs in MMA and call it a career.

MMA fighters fighting a legitimate boxer don't have much of a chance. Proven by MoneyMay and Joshua. It would be a different outcome if a boxer were to fight MMA style against a MMA fighter. MMA fighter would probably win.

I think Drake bet like 3/4 mil on Ngannou for the 3:1 payout odds… that’s nice condo

Not sure if Ngannou would go back to UFC but f yeah, maybe that Asian one (ONE?) could make it happen

Jones is still under contract with UFC. For MMA, Francis is under contract to the PFL. Unless there's a joint promotion it can't happen.

I hate Jones more than any other professional athlete in history
GTFOTW Get the (bleep) out of the way

This punk is sitting on the belt stopping progress for other title contenders
Fight Aspinall or retire ASAP
That (bleep) wants to fight a 40+ yr old man to retire on??

How did Dana ever let it come to this?

Full fight. I hope Ngannou will just do MMA. He may have a chance to fight again in a traditional boxing format and make a good payday but is it worth the risk?

I don't think the MMA guys care to prove one way or another in actual boxing because they know in a real fight or MMA they will win in the forever debate about boxing vs MMA. They obviously only do it for the money. Which MMA should be paying more for the punishment they take. I hope this kind of showing will show what happens if you want to take boxing at this level not seriously.

I don't mean that Ngannou didn't take it seriously, but the idea that a guy who was in his second pro boxing match against a 2-time heavyweight champ shouldn't logically be considered. But here we are when Fury doesn't take it seriously allowing for this to happen.

I thank Joshua for at least showing what should normally happen.

(the reverse is the same too)

Bye.

What does “real fighting” have anything to do with it?

Both disciplines are "real fighting" governed by different sets of rules.

MMA Rules

Queensburry Rules

Fighters using the discipline they train for would win in that forum. MMA would win using MMA rules when fighting a boxer and vice versa.

Mayweather is -225 for his rematch against Pacquaio this year.

It's gonna be the easiest money I've ever made.

I'm tempted to put in a bet now. But I think people's Mayweather hate can drop that number lower between now and fight night (which means more money for me).

kik, If I were a betting man I'd bet PacMan. I have a feeling he's going to hand MoneyMay his first loss. It won't count on his won loss professional record it will on his legacy. Pac ain't gonna be halfstepping. I believe this fight is happening when I hear the bell.

Mentioned it immediately. He should not have continued after barely making the 8-10 count. Not good corner management

When he looked at the ref he had some look like a kid/child knowing he was getting away with going back in when he wasn't supposed to..not sure exactly how to describe it

When he was asked if was ok..his acknowledgement looked hella sus
