We have arrived to fight week and the spectacle that will play out on Saturday night in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, between WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury and former UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou. On Tuesday afternoon, both men made their grand arrivals, which were received by a ton of media on-site and covering remotely. Fury was in full ‘Gypsy King’ mode while Ngannou appeared to be ready to handle his business. What kind of fight we will see on Saturday is up for debate, but the event coordinators in Riyadh have spent a good amount of money on the marketing and promotion of the event, so it needs to deliver. Here are some of the quotes from Tuesday’s grand arrival from both Fury and Ngannou.

“I can stand and trade with anybody. I stood and traded with Wilder. I traded with Wladimir {Klitschko}, and I’ll stand and trade with this little bi*ch.”

“I might give him a slick, master boxing performance, not let the ugly man touch me once. That would be unbelievable, wouldn’t it? I might start dancing, tripling the jab like Apollo Creed, move around, just stick and move.

“When {Ngannou} feels this right hand, he won’t be winning very much.”

“Sometimes I stand in front of the mirror and think I’m an absolute genius. When everyone thought it was all over for the GK, he comes and totally redeems himself and pulls this out of the hat. Only six months ago, I didn’t know if I ever was going to box again. Now, here we go.”

“I’m not thinking about {the Oleksandr Usyk fight}. I got this big sausage to deal with, and once I grill him up nice and good, then we’ll move on to the next one.”

“I can’t believe it. Walking from there, I looked at it like, “The boy made it.’”

“I didn’t try to replicate what Fury would do. I’m not going in there to play Fury’s game. I’m going there to play my own game. So, my training was based on me, how I can fight, and that’s what me and my coaches worked on. It went well. Tough, but it went well.”

“I’m aware of my lack of experience in boxing, but I am a man of challenges, and I’ve overcome a lot of challenges.”

“Before anything can happen on Saturday night, there are two. We are already the two baddest men on the planet. We’re just aiming for the first spot.”

“I’ve been waiting on Tyson Fury for four years. At the time, I didn’t know about Oleksandr Usyk. When the opportunity came, I wanted Tyson Fury. He’s the guy.”
