Ngannou Confirms He Wants to Fight Wilder

Former UFC champion Francis Ngannou (0-2), despite losing his first two professional boxing matches, is confident that a fight against former heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder (43-3-1, 42 KOs) definitely makes sense.

"Would I like to meet Wilder? Yes, of course. Listen, I've seen some people might have a lot of doubts and can't say anything for sure, nothing definite. But enough about that, guys, I'm a fighter.

We're here to fight, and whenever it comes to fights, when it's time to battle, we go and fight. I can still fight anyone. I take the challenge, go, and get ready for the opponent, and come out again. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't," Ngannou said.

Ngannou lost to Tyson Fury by decision and was knocked out by Anthony Joshua in the second round. Speaking about his professional boxing career before the fight against Anthony, Francis stated, "It won't be over until I meet Wilder."
