Ahead of their super bout in Riyadh, Francis Ngannou comes dangerously close to missing Eminem, even though his security is pointing at him.

The odds favor Francis Ngannou to win his super bout against Tyson Fury, which will take place soon.

It appeared as though virtually anything else that was not ‘The Gypsy King’ could not attract his attention, as ‘The Predator’ had to perform a double take in order to notice that he was walking past one of the most successful rappers in the history of the genre.

Ngannou most likely would have kept walking past the American music icon if it weren’t for the fact that his coach, Dewey Cooper, drew his attention to the situation. In a video that was uploaded to Twitter by Boxing on TNT Sports, Cooper was heard appearing to say:

“Em! It’s Eminem right there!

Francis Ngannou seemed to be unaware of Eminem until his security directed him in the direction of the rapper, at which point he took a second look. Ngannou’s face pulled a comical and surprised expression as soon as he realized who was standing in front of him.

The caption also mentions Israel Adesanya, who was the previous middleweight champion of the UFC and who seemed to shake hands with Eminem just as Ngannou was getting closer.

Can Francis Ngannou beat Tyson Fury?

The highly awaited and perhaps historic boxing battle between Francis Ngannou and Tyson Fury is finally going to take place in fewer than twenty-four hours.

The heavyweight champions of boxing and mixed martial arts are going to compete against each other for the first time ever to see who comes out on top in the “Battle of the Baddest.” Ngannou enters the fight as a significant underdog despite the fact that he favors a boxing-heavy strategy inside the cage and has a knockout power that has been well-documented.

Although many experts acknowledge that Ngannou has a puncher’s chance, Tyson Fury has survived three fights against Deontay Wilder, who is widely considered to be the most difficult one-hit puncher in the annals of boxing history. Fury was knocked down three times by Wilder over the course of over 30 rounds, but he was never knocked out of the fight.

On Saturday, October 28, the pay-per-view event that will feature Fury vs. Ngannou will get underway at 1 PM ET / 6 PM GMT.
