When heavyweight king Tyson Fury steps into the ring to face MMA heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou in Saudi Arabia later this month, it is going to headline a sort of KRONK family reunion.
Fury, is trained by Emanuel Steward's nephew, Sugar Hill Steward as many know, but the undercard is stacked with KRONK connections! The undercard will feature heavyweight contender Joseph Parker who is trained by former KRONK middleweight champion Andy Lee. Lee, Fury's cousin who originally brought Fury to KRONK years ago, is currently training Parker in Fury's camp and Parker has posted many times on social media wearing KRONK training shirts.
Also featured is undefeated heavyweight prospect David Adeleye vs Fabio Wardley. Adeleye, who is from the UK, is trained by KRONK alumni Third Chambers (current trainer of Jake Paul and Big Baby Miller among others). The KRONK brand has received massive exposure in recent months in Third Chambers training camps.
Providing Fury gets past Ngannou next up will be a heavyweight unification fight in a return to Saudi Arabia that could earn him as much as $200 million dollars (US). Stay tuned!
