Francis Ngannou is recognized for his punching and outright frightening power, now, the UFC champion admits he’d like to box an elite heavyweight like Tyson Fury or Deontay Wilder, according to TMZ Sports.

When TMZ spoke with the 35-year-old UFC fighter,  16-3 (12 KOs), and enquired if he has any intention of returning to boxing, he said

It’s always been down the line.

This is something I’m not taking my eyes off of. It’s gonna happen, either way. Even if, when the UFC and I finalize a deal, the boxing part has to be into it because I can’t see myself retire without boxing

Francis Ngannou does have one fight left on his contract with Dana White’s company, a title challenge versus interim champ, Ciryl Gane.

Tyson Fury, Deontay Wilder. I would like to test myself to that level.

It’s not the same sport, although I’m the champion, I’m in the top in this division.

At the end of the day, it’s just about like trained hands, trained punches, having a good delivery system to produce bombs and I’m sure that if I deliver my own punch, it’s pretty good, I can make some damage.
