You know what they say about not knowing your own strength? It looks like that applies to Francis Ngannou too.

The former UFC heavyweight champion, who takes on Tyson Fury in his professional boxing debut later this month in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, recently caused a bit of a stir in (and outside) a shop in Las Vegas when he very accidentally smashed its glass doors while attempting to gain entry.

According to the son of the shop owner on Reddit: “This happened at the weekend in my dad’s shop in Vegas. Francis thought it was a push door instead of a pull door. The door is really old anyway and had a few cracks so not too surprising. Still crazy, though. My dad was freaked out but Francis was nice about it and offered to pay to get it fixed.”
