Former Heavyweight champion Francis N’Gannou recently took to his social media to share a photo from the popular cartoon, The Simpsons, featuring a boxing scene where a black cartoon character is seen delivering a punch to a white one. N’Gannou reflected on this scene, drawing parallels to his October 28th fight with Tyson Fury.
The Simpsons, an American animated sitcom created by Matt Groening for the Fox Broadcasting Company, is renowned for its satirical depiction of American life and its uncanny ability to predict various major events. The first episode aired on December 17, 1989, and the show has since amassed 35 seasons.
N’Gannou’s post highlighted the boxing scene, leading fans to quickly connect it to his recent bout and laud him as a champion from birth. One Facebook user, Manuella Nguitti, commented, “I now understand that things happen in the spiritual before happening in the physical. So you are a champion even before birth. Waooo.”
Others expressed a newfound perspective on The Simpsons, with Ngwa Georges stating, “I used to watch The Simpsons from a child’s angle. But lately, I think The Simpsons is not an ordinary cartoon; it is way beyond what we see.”
Commenting on the show’s predictive nature, Fru Marcel wrote, “Bizarrely, The Simpsons even predicted Fury’s victory, and we did not still understand. I need to research more on this cartoon. N’Gannou, you are a champion.”
The ambiguity remains regarding whether The Simpsons coincidentally reveals future events or was intentionally created for that purpose. The narratives within each scene prompt questions about the show’s underlying story.
Despite N’Gannou not emerging victorious in the Battle of the Baddest, his exceptional performance resonated globally, securing him the 10th position in the WBC’s top 10 ranking.
