Former UFC Heavyweight Champion Francis Ngannou has a chance against Tyson Fury, according to boxing legend Mike Tyson.

Ngannou cemented his legacy as one of the UFC's greatest heavyweights after defeating Stipe Miocic in March 2021 to become the champion.

However, Ngannou later revealed that he did not feel valued as a free agent in the UFC and decided to part ways after rejecting a lucrative offer.

UFC president Dana White claimed that Ngannou turned down a historic contract.

Last year, Fury defended his WBC and The Ring Heavyweight titles against Dillian Whyte, and he and Ngannou seemed to confirm a superfight.

In an interview with TMZ Sports, Tyson said he believes Ngannou has a fighting chance against Fury. Tyson also revealed his post-UFC plans.

The much-anticipated superfight between Ngannou and Fury is expected to take place in the future.
