The once labelled ‘Baddest Man on the Planet’ is seeking to help another fighter claim that title, as Mike Tyson sets about preparing Francis Ngannou for his boxing debut against the current WBC world champion, Tyson Fury.

Although he is yet to enter the squared circle, Ngannou’s fearsome reputation as a knockout artist proceeds him ahead of his first taste of professional boxing.

On his route to the UFC heavyweight title, the 36-year-old claimed eleven victories, all by stoppage and all bar one coming by way of knockout.

As a result, Ngannou’s name is forever etched into the history of the MMA organisation as one of its most brutal punchers.Who better to train a man so daunting than a man who shares that same esteem in the sport of boxing?

During his rise to the world title, Tyson knocked out twenty-five of his twenty-seven counterparts, recording an astonishing.Mike Tywon

Since then, ‘Tito’ has got a taste for the ring, fighting in every month other than May and knocking out all seventeen of his opponents to date. At the weekend, Escalara scored another first-round stoppage, this time defeating Marcelo Leandro Da Silva (23-5) to move to 17-0 and edge one step closer to breaking Tyson’s record, as reported on social media.

However, depending on Tyson’s 18th fight, against Jesse Ferguson, who was disqualified for excessive holding but still awarded as a TKO defeat, it is still up-in-the-air as to whether Escalera has equalled the record or not.

Nevertheless, Escalera now has fifty-eight days to break Tyson’s record, with two more knockout victories putting an end to any disputes.

Of course, the opposition has been far from equal to that of ‘Kid Dynamite’ – and it’s unlikely the man from Puerto Rico achieves anything near what the American did in the sport.
