The former UFC heavyweight champion's swift movement through the crowd resulted in a momentary miss of Eminem, prompting a look of astonishment and realization from Ngannou. It was a close call, but the two managed to share a brief embrace.
Later that evening, Eminem showcased his passion for boxing while conversing with former professional boxer Amir Khan, who had gifted him a limited edition WBC watch.

While Fury is the clear favorite with odds of 1/16, Ngannou, a former heavyweight UFC fighter, is expected to present a formidable challenge.
