Riyadh is ready to host the "Battle of the Baddest" Tyson Fury vs Francis Ngannou professional boxing match, scheduled on October 28, 2023.

Portuguese soccer legend Cristiano Ronaldo currently leads the Riyadh-based Saudi Pro League club Al-Nassr. While Ronaldo is a big fan of boxing and UFC, Francis Ngannou is one of his favorites.

Before the "Battle of the Baddest", Ronaldo brought a special gift for the boxer Ngannou. The gift was a Jacob & Co. watch worth $133K.

That gift was a Jacob & Co x CR7 Epic X collection. It was a 44 mm case with X-shaped lugs, a smooth and polished or diamond-set bezel, and a colored crown and flange.

Ngannou thanked Ronaldo on social media by posting, "Got to pick up my new watch ahead of fight week here in Riyadh. Thank you @jacobandco Riyadh & my brother @cristiano! FuryNgannou."

Ngannou first time met Ronaldo early this year in Saudi Arabia. The boxer was surprised when he came to know that Ronaldo knew him very well and his family was a fan of him.

Ronaldo told him that he and his family watched his fight at 4 a.m. Earlier in a 2020 documentary made by DAZN, Ronaldo revealed that he would choose to watch boxing or UFC over soccer on TV.

Apart from Ronaldo, we can see more stars in the Tyson Fury vs Francis Ngannou battle. Boxing legends Mike Tyson, Lennox Lewis, Floyd Mayweather, etc. will attend in this battle.
