Ngannou reacted to Gan's early victory
The Frenchman won by knockout in the third round.
“It is difficult to answer the question whether I am impressed with the fighter that I defeated. He is not just in his place. I fought him because he was the main contender. Yes, he is good, but I am a champion, so it is very difficult to impress me.
It was an exciting fight, a lot of spectacular action. Up to a certain point, he was equal, but then Gan took him under his control. Cyril perfectly controls the distance, and today he was able to demonstrate this. Body shots gave him the win,” Ngannou said in an interview with ESPN.
