As noted by EuroSport, Tyson Fury will take on Francis Ngannou in a heavyweight boxing bout at the end of October.

The former UFC champion will be making his debut in the sport as he takes on the WBC heavyweight champion.

While the fight has been criticised by some who view it as a money-making bout more than anything, Saudi Arabia are going all out to promote it - and Ronaldo is doing his part.

The Al-Nassr star took to Instagram to share a new promotional advert for the fight in which he stars. In the video, Ronaldo attends a mock press conference when he is asked to share his thoughts on the blockbuster bout.

Ronaldo’s interaction with Fury and Ngannou

The former Real Madrid star is no stranger to either man.

Manchester Evening News noted that Ronaldo attended the fight between Fury’s brother, Tommy and Jake Paul. The contest was held in Saudi Arabia.

Ronaldo also met with Ngannou, per The Mirror and played a part in the fight being finalised between the two heavyweights. He will most likely be one of the many big-name stars to attend the battle of the big men.

Francis Ngannou promises to hurt Tyson Fury

Meanwhile, as Sports Brief reported, Francis Ngannou has sent a serious warning to Tyson Fury ahead of their upcoming fight.

The former UFC champion will take on the WBC heavyweight champion in a blockbuster boxing bout on October 28 in Saudi Arabia.

While the fight may be Ngannou’s debut in the boxing world, the Predator is nonetheless confident he can beat The Gypsy King.
