Ngannou didn’t just take Fury all the way to a narrow points victory, but also did it while taking an illegal elbow to the face in the process.

Fans had spotted the dangerous hit from Fury during the fight while others had labelled the Brit as “dirty” for the sixth round blow.

But Fury had not admitted to elbowing The Predator in the match-up until he opened up on the fight in Saudi Arabia on Wednesday ahead of Ngannou’s fight with Anthony Joshua.

Defending his reputation as a courageous fighter, he said: “I hear a lot of this coward talk from the two-time heavyweight champion of the world.

“There was 10 knockdowns in them Wilder trilogies, I went to Germany to fight Klitschko and the US to fight Wilder.

“Where’s all this coward s*** come from? Who am I a coward from? I don’t get it.

“The one thing I can gauge is I hit him [Ngannou] with some flush punches in the face, quite a lot, and even an elbow right in the face.

“He never went over, so regardless of my performance and his performance, I know he’s a tough so a gun.
