Renan Ferreira Believes Francis Ngannou Knows He’s A Threat

During an interview with MMAFighting.com, Renan Ferreira shared his belief that Francis Ngannou knows he’ll be in for a tall task when the two eventually collide whether it’s in the PFL SmartCage or a boxing ring.

“It surprised me a little bit,” Ferreira said. “I thought he was going to go up there, that we would do the faceoff. I saw he had an uncomfortable smile on his face. I think he felt this is for real, that this is a big problem for him. There’s a guy coming and he’s not fooling around, he’s hungry for the victory.

“[Ngannou] is on this boxing adventure that is opening many doors and I have huge respect for him, but he has a contract with PFL. Like I said, I’m ready to box him as well, I’m ready to fight him in MMA. Wherever they want, I’ll be ready.”

Ngannou is set to have a marquee boxing match against Anthony Joshua on March 8. With a win, Ngannou could punch his ticket to either a rematch with Tyson Fury, or a showdown with Oleksandr Usyk. When he decides to return to MMA, Ferreira will be waiting for him.
