CARL FRAMPTON has told Francis Ngannou how to beat Tyson Fury this weekend.
The former two-weight world champion has given his thoughts on the huge crossover fight.
Ngannou is set to make his professional boxing debut against Fury in Saudi Arabia on Saturday night.
Although their contest will be an official 10-round bout, the Gypsy King's WBC belt will not be on the line.
Former UFC heavyweight champion Ngannou will be supported by Mike Tyson as his trainer.
Iron Mike will be in his corner on Saturday but is also Fury's hero and was the inspiration behind his name, something Frampton feels could give Ngannou an edge in the ring.

"It might not be a massive issue for Tyson," explained the Northern Irishman.
"But it’s definitely something he will feel a bit uncomfortable with, that the guy who he’s named after and a hero to him is going to be in the opponent’s corner.
"Mike Tyson was a small heavyweight, he knew how to fight on the inside and Francis is smaller than Tyson Fury.
"I think the way Francis wins the fight is to get close and land shots from close distance and there’s no better man to teach you that than Mike Tyson.
