Francis Ngannou Set for PFL Debut Against Winner of Bader vs. Ferreira Bout


February 23, 2024

Francis Ngannou will make his Professional Fighters League debut against the winner of Saturday’s bout between Ryan Bader and Renan Ferreira.

The 37-year-old joined the PFL last year but is set to box Britain’s Anthony Joshua in Riyadh on March 8.

Ngannou lost narrowly to Tyson Fury on his boxing debut last October.

American Bader, 40, and Brazil’s Ferreira, 34, are fighting in Saudi Arabia on Saturday in a PFL v Bellator Champions event.

The show in Riyadh, which Cameroon’s Ngannou will be attending, is the first featuring both brands since the PFL acquired Bellator in November in a “transformative deal”.
