While the UFC man presents undisputed punch power, Tom Aspinall has energized the consideration of kicks as a base to even the odds. “I would be interested to see if them two fought, I’d like to see the fight, that would be awesome,” Aspinall told Sky Sports.
“Little gloves for sure, five-minute rounds, that would make it a little bit even.
I believe they should do something like first-round boxing alone, second round boxing and low kicks, and third-round boxing, low kicks, and clinching, to make it more equitable.
“I believe that makes it more equal to a degree if it’s boxing with small gloves on, but you’re still talking about one of the finest fighters who has ever lived.” Even yet, the possibilities are still slim.
“Obviously, Ngannou hits like a freight train; he still has a puncher’s chance, but if you throw in a couple of kicks and some clinching, and five-minute rounds, it would level things up a little.”
Wrath was recently photographed in the gym with British UFC middleweight Darren Till, who was wearing mixed combative tactics gloves and flinging knees and elbows in an intense intensity cushion match.
“I’ve fought him [Fury] before, and he’s interested in it,” Aspinall continued. “I know he’s done some grappling and kicking in the past, and he was down in our gym training.”
“It’s clear that he’s interested in it.” But I’d want to see it.”
Hybrid sessions have become a natural goal throughout combat sports, with undisputed light-middleweight champion Claressa Shields moving into MMA and Kamaru Usman previously expressing his desire to fight Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez, no doubt causing irritation among UFC president Dana Whyte.
When Floyd Mayweather Jr. faced Conor McGregor in 2017, the valuable monetary prizes of such an event were highlighted, with boxing’s robust battle handbags filling in as a critical purpose for Ngannou’s desire for any upcoming new agreement with UFC that would allow him to jump between the two disciplines. Regardless, Aspinall has advised candidates against underestimating a stumbling block.
“I think he’d need at least a couple of years to prepare if he [Fury] wants to fight in the UFC under UFC regulations,” Aspinall remarked.
“The transition from boxing to MMA is far more difficult than people think; I believe it is naive for an MMA fighter to believe they can go over and box world-class boxers, and vice versa. It’s a naive way of thinking.
“I enjoy boxing, but I’d need at least a year to do nothing but a box.” It’s a significant change.”
