When asked if anything surprised him about Ngannous approach, Fury replied;
Hes a very awkward man, and hes a good puncher. I respect him a lot, before the fight and afterward.
He wasnt coming forward. He was just standing back waiting for me to land my punches and then trying to counter. Hes a good fighter. Hes given me probably one of my toughest fights in the last 10 years.
