Fury, 34, is the overwhelming favourite to win the ten-rounder against the boxing novice – but he’s made sure he’ll get a second crack at the Cameroonian clubber should the unthinkable happen.

During an appearance on The MMA Hour, Ngannou revealed: “There is a potential rematch clause.

“I don’t know exactly how to explain that language, but yes, there is a rematch inside it.”

When asked if that would guarantee a second fight with the WBC heavyweight champ, Ngannou added: “Oh, for that one, definitely.”

Ngannou, however, doesn’t know if he’ll be able to exercise the rematch clause should he come up short against the Brit.

He said: “That’s what I don’t know. We will see how it goes.”

Fury would have to wait at least SIX MONTHS to exact revenge on Ngannou as The Predator is set to make his Professional Fighters League debut early next year.

The Wythenshawe warrior is expected to re-enter negotiations with Oleksandr Usyk over a historic undisputed heavyweight title fight after his clash with Ngannou.


Ngannou bagged a monumental showdown with Fury a mere six months after the expiration of his UFC contract.

And his purse for his professional boxing debut is set to dwarf his ENTIRE octagon earnings.

During an appearance on The MMA Hour, his manager Marquel Martin said: “Let’s just say this: The bag is so big, he may actually just drop it on the way to the bank.

“I don’t know what the haters are trying to say right now, I kind of just blocked it out, but they’ll just be proven wrong again.

“This is life-changing. This is exactly what we planned and visualized, so we’re happy.”

When asked if Ngannou’s earnings for the fight will be more than his UFC winnings, Martin added: “Oh, my God. I mean, by far.

“By multiples.

“Just to make [this money] even while being champion, he would’ve had to fight multiple times just to [be in this ballpark].”
