Nigerian singer, Davidohas hailed the performance of Cameroonian ex-UFC champion Francis Ngannou in his boxing debut.
Ngannou lost a controversial decision against WBC heavyweight title holder Tyson Fury in the pair’s boxing match on Saturday night in Saudi Arabia, despite knocking down the Briton in Round 3.
The Cameroonian continued to outbox Fury for much of the bout, only to be denied a victory when the scorecards were read aloud.
Reacting, Davido insisted that Ngannou won the match.
Sharing a picture of the ex-UFC star via his Instagram story, Davido wrote, “francisngannou stellar performance! Def [definitely] won that!”
The fight was littered with celebrity faces including Kanye West and Eminem, as well as Cristiano Ronaldo, UFC headliner Conor McGregor and current and former boxing greats, Sugar Ray Leonard and Manny Pacquiao.
Fury has now turned his attention to the undisputed heavyweight championship clash with Oleksandr Usyk.
“Let’s go,” Fury said after the match, to which Usyk replied the same.
Fury’s win comes after his younger brother, Tommy Fury, defeated YouTuber KSI on a majority decision after a six-round cruiserweight match in Manchester on 15 October.
