Following his successful title defence against Cyril Gane at UFC 270 last week, it's unclear as to whether the UFC world heavyweight champion, Francis Ngannou, will stay in MMA or make the transition to boxing.

Ngannou has teased a move to boxing following a heated social media exchange with WBC world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, but what would happen if the two men went head-to-head?

MMA legend Rampage Jackson joined The DAZN Boxing Show to give his prediction.

"In my opinion, Francis is a great fighter, but boxing is a whole different ball game especially with someone like Tyson Fury," Jackson said.

"Tyson has surprised me several times, especially in his first fight with Wilder, he surprised the hell out of me.

"Francis is a little bit wild to hang in there with someone like Tyson, I think he has a puncher’s chance. If he lands a punch on anybody, he puts them to sleep, but Tyson Fury is at the top of the food chain at heavyweight.

"If I was Francis, I wouldn’t shy away from a fight like that because it’s a big pay day."
