Francis Ngannou responded to Deontay Wilder’s recent interview, stating his hope that Wilder keeps his promise to fight him next.

Wilder's decision to face Ngannou involves far less risk than fighting talented contenders like Joe Joyce, Andy Ruiz Jr, or Anthony Joshua and potentially suffering another knockout loss.

Ngannou, a former UFC heavyweight champion, expressed interest in a boxing match with Wilder to “keep his limbs.”

Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua are also interested in fighting Wilder, making it difficult to predict which fighter Ngannou will ultimately choose based on the highest payout.

The platform on which the Wilder vs. Ngannou clash will be aired is yet to be announced, but it will be on pay-per-view, and the price will be high.

Fans may be upset if Wilder easily defeats Ngannou in a round or two, as they will have paid a high price for what they expected to be a competitive fight.

Critics believe Ngannou is taking a shortcut to earn quick money without earning his position, risking his career by throwing himself in with a killer like Wilder.

Ngannou’s decision to fight Wilder is likened to taking a golfer or tennis player and putting gloves on them to be quickly annihilated.

Wilder has offered Ngannou the chance to choose the fight type between MMA and boxing, claiming that everything is going well with the negotiations.
