UFC Star Sets Sights on Boxing Heavyweight

Francis Ngannou UFC

Francis Ngannou has undoubtedly built a reputation of being a heavy hitter in the world of MMA but now, the 35-year-old is setting his sights on throwing punches on an even bigger stage as the Cameroonian MMA star is targeting a move into heavyweight boxing.

But it’s not just an ambition of the former UFC champion to get into the ring with any heavyweight; he’s focussing on getting right to the top with Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder being the fighters he wants to square off against.

Ngannou revealed in an interview that it’s always been something that’s been in his mind, as he admitted that any prospective new deal with the UFC must allow him to step into the boxing ring too. “This is going to happen either way, and even if I stay — even if or when the UFC and I, we finally, we finalize a [new] deal, the boxing part has to be into it, because I can’t see myself to retire without boxing,” he said.

However, before any more thoughts of boxing enter his head, Ngannou is concentrating on his next bout in the octagon; the headline event at UFC 270, where he is taking on Ciryl Gane in the Honda Center in Anaheim on January 23. Gane, who is four years younger than his opponent, goes into the fight with an unblemished record of 10-0. However, Ngannou is the overwhelming favorite to defeat Gane in the UFC betting odds listed on Coral, and after that, it seems his future will be decided. So, we don’t have to wait long to see if bouts are booked with Fury and Wilder or Ngannou to renew rivalries with Stipe Miocic and Derrick Lewis instead.

Targeting Fury is ambitious; he is arguably the best heavyweight fighter in the world right now, with his demolition of Deontay Wilder in late 2021 going down as one of the best boxing bouts in history. He’s got destructive power, and Fury highlighted it by knocking out the Bronze Bomber back in October. Next up he faces the prospect of taking on WBC interim champion Dillian Whyte, and then it looks like a winner takes all bout against either Oleksandr Usyk or Anthony Joshua.

For Wilder, a fight against Ngannou could prove to be the perfect way to put himself back into the spotlight, he was left reeling in the wake of his defeat to Fury. So, arguably a fight between one of the biggest ever punchers in the UFC and the man regarded as the hardest hitter in boxing would certainly be a spectacle, and arguably more likely as Fury will look to concentrate on solidifying his grip on the world heavyweight championship.

Ngannou is undoubtedly one of the best strikers in the Octagon, and it’s led to former UFC heavyweight Brendan Schaub thinks that he would knock out his boxing contemporaries with little fuss. Yahoo reported that Schaub rates Ngannou’s chances against the world’s best in the ring, but before any further conversations of a potential crossover can happen, there’s the not so small matter of dealing with Gane.

P!nk – True Love lyrics

“P!nk – True Love lyrics”

[Verse 1: P!nk]
Sometimes I hate every single stupid word you say
Sometimes I wanna slap you in your whole face
There’s no one quite like you
You push all my buttons down
I know life would suck without you

[Pre-Chorus: P!nk]
At the same time, I wanna hug you
I wanna wrap my hands around your neck
You’re an asshole, but I love you
And you make me so mad I ask myself
Why I’m still here, or where could I go
You’re the only love I’ve ever known
But I hate you, I really hate you
So much, I think it must be

[Chorus: P!nk]
True love, true love
It must be true love
Nothing else can break my heart like
True love, true love
It must be true love
No one else can break my heart like you

[Verse 2: P!nk]
Just once, try to wrap your little brain around my feelings
Just once, please try not to be so mean
Repeat after me now R-O-M-A-N-C-E-E-E
Come on, I’ll say it slowly (Romance)
You can do it, babe!

[Pre-Chorus: P!nk]
At the same time, I wanna hug you
I wanna wrap my hands around your neck
You’re an asshole, but I love you
And you make me so mad I ask myself
Why I’m still here, or where could I go
You’re the only love I’ve ever known
But I hate you, I really hate you
So much, I think it must be

[Chorus: P!nk]
True love, true love
It must be true love
Nothing else can break my heart like
True love, true love
It must be true love
No one else can break my heart like you

[Interlude: P!nk]
I think it must be love (I love you)
I think it must be love (I love you)

[Bridge: Lily Allen]
Why do you rub me up the wrong way?
Why do you say the things that you say?
Sometimes I wonder how we ever came to be
But without you, I’m incomplete

[Chorus: P!nk]
Oh, I think it must be
True love (It must be), true love
It must be true love (It must be)
Nothing else can break my heart like
True love (It must be), true love
It must be true love (It must be)
No one else can break my heart like you (Like you)
No one else can break my heart like you (Like you)
No one else can break my heart like you

Rag’n’Bone Ma – Anywhere Away from Here lyrics

“Rag’n’Bone Ma – Anywhere Away from Here lyrics”

[Verse 1: Rag’n’Bone Man]
Wild and running
Fearlessness is burning bright
We knew nothing ’cause out of sight is out of mind
Before we ever learned the fear of being bold
Before we ever were afraid of the unknown

[Pre-Chorus: Rag’n’Bone Man]
When the lights go up
I don’t think I told you
I don’t think I told you
That I feel out of place

[Chorus: Rag’n’Bone Man]
Pull me underground
Don’t know if you notice
Sometimes I close my eyes
And dream of somewhere else
Anywherе away from here
Anywherе away from here
Anywhere away from here

[Verse 2: P!nk]
We sold our souls and we lost control
With more doubt than hope
Glass half empty and discontented from growing old
Through all the failed attempts at trying to belong
I overthink the obvious when I’m alone

[Pre-Chorus: P!nk]
But when the lights go up
I don’t think I told you
I don’t think I told you
That I feel out of place

[Chorus: P!nk]
So pull me underground
Don’t know if you notice
Sometimes I close my eyes
And dream of somewhere else
Anywhere away from here
Anywhere away from here
Anywhere away from here

[Bridge: Rag’n’Bone Man, with P!nk]
Oh, when I close my eyes
Oh, when I close my eyes
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
I wish I could disappear

[Chorus: P!nk]
When the lights go up
I don’t think I told you
I don’t think I told you
That I feel out of place

[Chorus: Rag’n’Bone Man, with P!nk]
Pull me underground
Don’t know if you notice
Sometimes I close my eyes
And dream of somewhere else
Anywhere away from here
Anywhere away from here
Anywhere away from here

P!nk – Walk Me Home lyrics

“P!nk – Walk Me Home lyrics”

[Verse 1]
There’s somethin’ in the way you roll your eyes
Takes me back to a better time
When I saw everything is good
But now you’re the only thing that’s good
Tryna stand up on my own two feet
This conversation ain’t coming easily
And darlin’, I know it’s getting late
So what do you say we leave this place?

[Chorus]
Walk me home in the dead of night
I can’t be alone with all that’s on my mind, mhm
So say you’ll stay with me tonight
‘Cause there is so much wrong goin’ on outside

[Verse 2]
There’s somethin’ in the way I wanna cry
That makes me think we’ll make it out alive
So come on and show me how we’re good
I think that we could do some good, mhm

[Chorus]
Walk me home in the dead of night
I can’t be alone with all that’s on my mind, mhm
So say you’ll stay with me tonight
‘Cause there is so much wrong goin’ on outside

[Bridge]
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh

[Chorus]
Walk me home in the dead of night
‘Cause I can’t be alone with all that’s on my mind
Say you’ll stay with me tonight
‘Cause there is so much wrong goin’ on
Walk me home in the dead of night
I can’t be alone with all that’s on my mind
So say you’ll stay with me tonight
‘Cause there is so much wrong, there is so much wrong
There is so much wrong goin’ on outside
