"Usyk Invited Me to Ukraine": Fury and Ngannou's Open Training Session (Photos)

On October 25, an open training session took place in Saudi Arabia as a prelude to the upcoming showdown between WBC champion Tyson Fury and former UFC champion Francis Ngannou, following the rules of boxing.

Ngannou entered the ring without his trainer, Mike Tyson, working the pads and later expressing his intent to earn respect within the boxing community.

Fury enjoyed himself, engaged with the audience, and entertained fans around the ring. Following the workout, he revealed that Usyk had invited him to Ukraine:

"I had a conversation with Usyk via FaceTime. I even invited him to Morecambe after I beat him. In the summer, he plans to visit Morecambe with his family, and he expressed that it would be a fantastic experience. I told him, 'You can come here with your family, take a vacation after the fight, no problem.' He even extended an invitation for me to visit Ukraine, but for obvious reasons, I declined," said Fury.

The Fury vs. Ngannou fight is scheduled for October 28 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. We have previously shared where you can watch the boxing event – here.
