Following Fury's spectacular knockout of Dillian Whyte to defend his WBC heavyweight title at Wembley Stadium last night, both men talked to ESPN, confirming preparations for an exhibition fight in 2023.
Following his victory over Whyte, Fury was joined in the ring by Ngannou.
Confirming their plans for a "hybrid fight", Fury said: “This is going to be one very special fight, unlike anything ever seen in our sport.
“It is going to be explosive when it happens.”
“It is going to be a hybrid fight with a different type of rules; MMA gloves in the [boxing ring],” Ngannou added.
“We are going to find out who the baddest mother***** on the planet is.”
When asked when the fight could take place, Ngannou suggested a final date be decided before the end of this year.
He said, “Definitely, sometime in 2023, that fight will happen. By the end of this year, we will get it sorted and get it settled.
