Dillian Whyte challenges Francis Ngannou, says he will knock Ngannou out

WBC champion Dillian Whyte has issued a challenge to newly crowned UFC Heavyweight Champion Francis Ngannou. Whyte, who recently regained the WBC Interim Heavyweight Title by defeating Alexander Povetkin, noted that he is ready to fight Ngannou under boxing or MMA rules.

"If Ngannou wants a fight tomorrow, I'll fight him tomorrow. I want to make it fair. I know some other boxers want to fight an MMA guy. I believe I can beat him in both styles. I can beat him in MMA and in boxing. I don't think he's anything special, whichever they want. The guy is scared, so if doing MMA makes him feel better. If we have a fight in the cage first, he might take it, but if we offer him a boxing fight, then he might say, 'No, no, no.' If he wants it, he can get it,” he noted to Sky Sports.

Whyte also spoke about the press conference that he held with Ngannou last year and claimed that Ngannou is fragile.

“He's very fragile. He calls himself 'The Predator' but he should be called 'The Pacifier' because he's a real dummy and a cry baby. Afterward he ran to his boss Dana White, pleading to get it pulled. He was terrified of actually fighting me after he had a meltdown on air. Pathetic,” Whyte added.
