FRANCIS NGANNOU bizarrely questioned Tyson Fury's true height ahead of their fight.
The boxing and MMA superstars collide in a crossover clash this Saturday in Saudi Arabia.
Fury is listed as 6ft 9in while Ngannou is 6ft 4in – but when the two came face to face there was little to separate them.
And the ex-UFC champion – making his boxing debut – believes the Gypsy King may be smaller than he makes out.
He told TNT Sports: “They say he’s 6ft 9in? But this doesn’t look like five inches difference, right?"
Fury, 35, quickly interjected: "How tall are you?"

Ngannou, 37, responded: "They say I’m, 6ft 4in."
Fury replied: "I think really you are about 6ft 2in."
Ngannou hit back: "Well, I would say you're about 6ft 5in'."
Fury heads into the fight full of confidence and even gave away his game plan to Ngannou's face.
