Superstar footballer, Cristiano Ronaldo has gifted Francis Ngannou a watch worth £87,000 ahead of the UFC legend’s cross-over fight with Tyson Fury in Saudi Arabia this weekend.

Ngannou was all smiles as he showed off the Jacob and Co watch, which came in a CR7 stylised case.

He was presented with the gift, from the limited edition line called ‘Heart of Ronaldo’, outside a Jacob and Co outlet.

‘Got to pick up my new watch ahead of fight week here in Riyadh,’ wrote Ngannou as he labelled Ronaldo his ‘brother’.

The two met in Riyadh in January after Ngannou was released from his UFC contract and he called the footballer ‘inspirational’ at the time.

 

Ngannou is preparing for a blockbuster contest against Fury which has drawn criticism from fans who wanted the latter to face Oleksandr Usyk.

Dubbed ‘The Battle of the Baddest’, it will see the Cameroonian-French mixed martial artist compete in his first professional boxing fight.

He is set to pocket more money than he earned across his entire 14-fight UFC career as estimates predict he will earn around £ 6 million.
