10 - 14 July

A longstanding wish by Francis Ngannou, the Ultimate Fighting Championship's former heavyweight champion, the opportunity to enter a boxing ring and fight a professional boxing champion has finally arrived. The date has been set for 28 October in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, and the opponent is current heavyweight champion Tyson Fury. According to Fury's team, the fight will "take place under the official rules of professional boxing, with three judges ringside adopting the 10-point must system". Even though the title will not be defended, we look forward to the big fight in October.
