“Next Question”: Ronaldo responded when asked about Ngannou’s chances of winning Tyson Fury in their upcoming fight on October 28th. The football superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo has been making waves on social media lately after he bluffed his way out of the question.
In a promo video for the fight, the Portuguese superstar simply replies, “Next question” after a journalist asked him to predict Ngannou’s chances of victory.
The Ngannou-Fury combat, one of the biggest fights of the year, is taking place in the Saudi Arabian capital, Riyadh, on October 28.
It will be the toughest fight for British professional boxer Tyson Luke Fury since he began professional boxing in 2008.
Fury, who has won 33 out of 34 fights with just one draw, has remained undefeated in his sphere.
For Ngannou, it will be his biggest fight since he started mixed martial arts in 2013. The Cameroonian former UFC champion had won 17 fights and lost just three when he left the UFC in January.
The fight between both champions, which has been nicknamed the “Battle of the Baddest,” is much anticipated. It is expected to be one of the biggest sporting events of the year, and it is sure to attract a massive audience from all over the world.
Ronaldo’s promo video is one of the thousands of social media videos and posts that have publicised the event.
Ronaldo’s “next question” reply in the video is seen as a clever way to avoid giving a prediction for the fight. He knows that both Fury and Ngannou are incredibly dangerous fighters, and he doesn’t want to risk picking the wrong side.
Ronaldo’s decision to stay neutral is also a smart move from a business perspective. He doesn’t want to alienate any potential fans of either fighter.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner, who plays for Saudi club, Al-Nassr, is expected to be among many high-profile fans at the event.
Ronaldo’s only impediment to the fight could be Al-Nassr’s game against Al Feiha, which plays on the same day.
