Former UFC heavyweight champion, Francis Ngannou would be paid 4.6 billion fcfa to to fight heavyweight boxing champ, Tyson Fury.
Ngannou left the UFC earlier this year after contract negotiations failed.
It has been six months after that and Ngannou who wants to test his skills has landed a big-time boxing match against Tyson Fury.
The fight will be funded by Saudis and take place in Saudi Arabia.
According to a report from the Daily Mail, Ngannou will be paid $8 million for his fight with Fury. This is equivalent to £6 million and over 4.6 billion fcfa.
The amount is much more than he earned in his final UFC fight against Ciryl Gane.
