Uncertainty Surrounding Fight Details

The Potential Payday for Fury and Ngannou

Fury has previously mentioned that fighters can earn 10 to 50 times more in boxing compared to MMA.

Long-Awaited Showdown Between Champions

Ngannou's Advocacy for Better Pay and Benefits

During contract negotiations, Ngannou advocated for health insurance, sponsors, and a fighter advocate at UFC board meetings, highlighting the need for better pay and benefits for all UFC fighters.

His move to the Professional Fighters League (PFL) in May this year was seen as a significant step towards better compensation and support for fighters.

The landmark fight with Fury is expected to be a rewarding opportunity for Ngannou in terms of both acclaim and financial gain.
