Francis Ngannou will step into the ring to face reigning WBC heavyweight world champion Tyson Fury in the first boxing fight of his career on Saturday.

The former UFC heavyweight champion has crossed over from mixed martial arts to the boxing world, with 37-year-old bidding to cause a stunning upset in Saudi Arabia.

Ngannou emerged from poverty in Cameroon to forge out a successful UFC career, before leaving the promotion earlier this year.

With the Battle of the Baddest expected to net Ngannou more in one fight than his entire UFC career, he could be forgiven for wanting to splash out on a new motor following the contest.

Ngannou already has an enviable car collection, which he could add to with the estimated £8m on Saturday.

Rolls-Royce Phantom VII – £421,000

The most expensive car in Ngannou’s collection is his Rolls-Royce Phantom VII, which is valued at a eye-watering £421,000.

The car is one of the most expensive in the world, with Rolls Royce claiming the luxury model defines new standards of excellence.

The Rolls Royce Phantom uses the manufacturers 6.75-litre twin-turbocharged V12 engine.

Despite its imposing size, the Phantom is still capable of going from 0-60mph in 5.7 seconds, although its top speed is limited at 147mph.

The Rolls-Royce was believed to have set the UFC star back around £270,600.

The Ghost still has the V12 engine, but at a smaller size is capable of going from 0-60mph in 4.7 seconds and can reach a top speed of 155mph.

Ngannou has not been shy in showing off his collection, with the 37-year-old posing alongside a Rolls-Royce 11 weeks out from facing Fury in Riyadh.
