Francis Ngannou has some big plans in his next few fights as he targets two massive stars — find out who the heavyweight champ wants and much more in the latest social media roundup.
Francis Ngannou targets Jon Jones & Tyson Fury
Francis Ngannou hasn't defended the heavyweight title just yet but he already has some big plans in his future. "The Predator" has targeted a Jon Jones super fight in MMA and a potential crossover match with Tyson Fury after. The Cameroonian didn't specify if it would be boxing or MMA for the latter but either way that would be a huge PPV draw.
Fury saw this and responded in vintage fashion. Both men have business to look after first with Ngannou seemingly facing Derrick Lewis next whilst "The Gypsy King" has a massive clash with Anthony Joshua soon.

Dan Hardy wants Nick Diaz fight
Dan Hardy has called out Nick Diaz for a comeback fight for the pair. Diaz is rumored to be returning soon but the former broadcaster thinks the UFC will use Diaz to build up a rising star. Khamzat Chimaev anyone?
The amount of @nickdiaz209 related posts that I’ve been tagged in in recent days, is crazy!— Dan Hardy (@danhardymma) April 28, 2021
It’s the perfect fight for both of us to step back in there.
You know that he won’t get matched favorably though... he’ll be used to build someone else up, which is a real shame.
