‘By far’ – Tyson Fury reveals who punches harder between Deontay Wilder and Francis Ngannou

Tyson Fury has fought Deontay Wilder and Francis Ngannou, but is in no doubt who punches harder.

The ‘Gypsy King’ was dropped to the canvas by Ngannou in his most recent outing in October 2023 but was able to recover to pick up a narrow win on the judges’ scorecards.

He shared one of the most iconic heavyweight trilogies of all-time with the ‘Bronze Bomber’, first drawing in controversial fashion in December 2018.

Their rematch saw Fury gain dominant victory over Wilder in February 2020, dropping his rival on multiple occasions.

Then in their most recent trilogy battle, Fury was knocked down twice but managed to stop the fight in the eleventh round.

Both Wilder and Ngannou are considered two of the most formidable punchers in combat sports, but Fury believes the American has the edge.

He told The Stomping Ground: “Deontay, by far. Ngannou is a big puncher, but I wasn’t really troubled by any of his punches.

“It wasn’t like he was dynamite and every time he hit me I was wobbled.

“Just one shot to the back of the head and that was it. Wilder’s still the biggest puncher I’ve ever been in the ring with by a mile.”

Wilder recently lost to Joseph Parker in a huge upset in December 2024, but could still return at the top given the dangerous dynamite in his hands.

Ngannou was unable to land his record-breaking punch in his most recent fight with Anthony Joshua, where he fell to a damaging stoppage defeat in just two rounds on March 8.

The power-punching pair have previously been in talks over a two-fight deal in both MMA and boxing, but any concrete talks have yet to re-materialise.

Wilder has already acknowledged Ngannou’s heavy hands, but still believes he has the most dynamic shots.

When addressing the debate, he said: “I’ve been doing it for a very long time, and every man I’ve faced I’ve been knocking out and putting them on the canvas.

“I don’t think that’s the same for him, he’s got power and he can punch.

“We can give him that but when it comes to the hardest puncher in all of combat sports, you’re hearing the voice and you’re looking at the man that holds that title and that’s facts.”
