Thoughts on Fury vs Ngannou and the card?

Tyson Fury vs Francis Ngannou takes place on October 28 in Saudi Arabia. PPV in UK, probably PPV in the US on ESPN.

Some interesting Heavyweight match-ups have been announced for the card. Boxrec not listing the fight or card.

Joseph Parker (32-3, 22 KOs) vs Simon Kean (23-1, 22 KOs) and Martin Bakole (19-1, 14 KOs) vs Carlos Takam (40-7-1, 28 KOs).

Fabio Wardley (16-0, 15 KOs) vs David Adeleye (12-0, 11 KOs), will go ahead despite the presser brawl. The British title won't be on the line, as it's outside of BBBoC jurisdiction.

Thoughts on the card and the main event?

Big steps up for Kean and Bakole. Dunno if Kean's up to the task. Takam's very crafty and still a tough nut to crack, but for how much longer? Would be a good scalp for Bakole. Wardley-Adeleye should be a war. Wardley's a bit too much empty hype to convince me. One punch is all it takes - spin the roulette wheel - but Adeleye is the sounder fighter for me. (The silence you're hearing in re the main event is deliberate.)

Bakole - Takam  and Wardley - Adeleye  are both mouth-watering.

 

I'm a HUGE fan of Bakole, and I think he'll take Takam out in the middle rounds.

 

Wardley - Adeleye is 50-50 for me.  I like Wardley's speed and athleticism,  but he's been massively protected along the way, so....  

He's also a deliberate rabbit-punching POS,  with paid off refs letting him get away with it to a level I don't think I've ever seen before.  So I hope Adeleye, who's a tough, high-energy come-forward wrecking machine, takes his head off.

This MMA guy is massively strong and used to punching, ......

Yeah, but he also has possibly the slowest hands in the history of the HW division,  and that's not an exaggeration.  Watch the videos of him training with Iron Mike.  It's positively hilarious.

 

Fury is looking rather obese, but he should still be able to completely avoid this clown, while having deep meaningful conversations with at least three hot babes in the first row.

 

I got Fury by a massively wide decision, after an incredibly boring 12 rounds. 

(Or is it, mercifully, only ten rounds?)

 

Someone get the "Worst FOTY" award ready.  We may need it.

Even more Heavyweights added. Presser doesn't mention Bakole vs Takam but that has been confirmed.

- - Someone using public media workouts as true training for the biggest fight of Francis' career best not put up the farm on this shyteshow.

Does anyone know why none of these fights are listed on the fighters' Boxrec records?

 

The main event is a complete joke, but all the undercard fights are legit and exciting matchups.

- - Boxrec sees Francis/Flubber as exhibition as possibly the undercards as well. I believe it was announced as an exhibition, but no matter, a shyteshow is a shyteshow by any other Flubber these days.
