Anatoly Malykhin’s coach has left a message for Francis Ngannou! John Hutchinson told the former UFC heavyweight king that the Russian was coming for him and he should have stayed where he was.

Ngannou is currently a free agent and is reportedly in talks with a number of promotions including ONE Championship. But John Hutchinson, who is the boxing coach at Tiger Muay Thai, appears to be under the impression that Chatri Sityodtong has got his man.

His message for Ngannou was,

Francis Ngannou you should of stayed where you’re at when you had the chance . Your about to face the biggest challenge Anatoly Malykhin.

Unification fight

Malykhin is booked to face Arjan Bhullar in a title unification fight at ONE Fight Night 12. That matchup wasn’t confirmed until after Hutchinson posted this on Instagram, so when he writes that there is a ‘contract pending’ that must be the fight in question.

But the Tiger Muay Thai boxing coach clearly believes that Ngannou is ONE Championship bound. He is extremely close to Malykhin and the Russian once joined together with Petr Yan to buy Hutchinson a brand new truck.

Malykhin’s team is clearly under the impression that Ngannou will sign with ONE Championship. If he did then a title fight with the undefeated Russian would clearly be the biggest matchup in the promotion’s 12 year history.

But Malykhin will have to get past Bhullar first. It isn’t clear why that fight keeps getting postponed but Hutchinson clearly feel the blame lies with the Canadian’s camp writing that,

When that little soft bum Arjan comes out of hiding we promise it will be over very fast in a powerful blink of a eye. Making room faster than ever for the real fight to happen.

Numerous taunts

Malykhin has been taunting Bhullar and calling him a chicken for so long that it is difficult to keep track of all the insults. There is no question that the Russian wants the fight but it isn’t clear why it keeps getting postponed.

With a 12-0 record and two titles Malykhin  is clearly one of the best heavyweights in the world. He holds the ONE Championship light heavyweight strap and the interim heavyweight belt.

On July 15th he will have the opportunity to become the undisputed heavyweight champion. If Malykhin can get past Bhullar then his coach clearly believes that Francis Ngannou awaits!
