MIKE TYSON has revealed his shocking thoughts on how the Tyson Fury v Francis Ngannou fight will end up.
Fury and Ngannou are preparing to come to blows in Saudi Arabia later this month.
The pair face off in a crossover fight that will see MMA star Ngannou make his boxing debut against the world heavyweight champion.
But despite Ngannou’s relative novice status, it would seem that boxing legend Mike Tyson still thinks he could pull off a HUGE shock.
The former undisputed world heavyweight champion is helping Ngannou with his training and after keeping a close eye on him, he seems convinced of his ability.
But not only does Tyson think Ngannou can win the fight, he reckons that he will be able to knock The Gyspy King out too.

Speaking to the Mail Online, he said: “I am helping Ngannou. I am learning what he is able to do. He's able to do so much more than I anticipated.
“He has what it takes to knockout anything or anybody standing in his way. Once he lands a punch on Tyson Fury's jaw he is going to knock him out too. Nobody can survive that.”
And even Fury seems aware that the fight will be tougher than most people are anticipating.
The undefeated champ said: “I think he’s going to be a bit of a bigger, tougher challenge than these other guys. These other guys are just boxers, this guy’s more than that.”
