Tyson Fury vs Francis Ngannou Odds: Date, How to Bet, and Complete Betting Odds

When is Tyson Fury vs. Francis Ngannou?

When: TBD

Where: T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas, NV

In a matchup that has both casual and avid fight fans over the moon excited, boxing’s WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury has confirmed a fight against UFC’s heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou. Though the timing is yet to be determined, “The Gypsy King” Fury made it clear that the fight will be in Las Vegas sometime in early 2023.

In what will be potentially the biggest and most-watched fight in history, the rules are yet to be solidified but boxing rules with MMA-style gloves sound like it’s the consensus. Let’s take a look at both fighters and see how this one might turn out.

Tyson Fury (31-0-1, 22 KOs)

Before Fury can think ahead to a matchup with Ngannou, he has business to handle in his own ring in the form of an April 23rd fight against Dillian Whyte. As in most of his fights outside of Deontay Wilder, Fury is a massive -650 favorite against Whyte who despite having a record of 28-2 (19 KOs) in his own right, should be of little concern. 

At 6’9”, Fury might be one of the few professional fighters in the world that would make Ngannou (6’4”) look small. Though no weight has been discussed to this point, it’s worth noting Fury weighed in at 273lbs for his most recent fight against Wilder.

Francis Ngannou (17-3, 12 KOs)

The biggest challenge for Ngannou in this fight might come outside the ring instead of in it, as he is still contractually tied to the UFC following his UFC 270 win over Ciryl Gane. Though it was technically the last fight of his contract, each time a UFC champion wins, his contract is extended an additional fight. 

Prior to his decision win over Gane, Ngannou’s entire career has been filled with one KO after another as 10 of his 14 UFC fights have ended in KO/TKO. Adding to the intrigue of this fight, Ngannou’s first look into professional fighting came in the form of boxing beginning at age 22. Before his MMA career ever took off, Ngannou had dreams of becoming a professional boxer and his talent has been displayed time after time in the octagon. 

Tyson Fury vs. Francis Ngannou Odds

Tyson Fury vs. Francis Ngannou Odds & Public Betting Data

While there isn’t much in the way of public betting data as of yet, I can certainly see the money continuing to flow in one direction; on Fury. As we saw with Floyd Mayweather Jr. in his fights against Conor McGregor and then Logan Paul, the fighter whose sport the match is geared to, normally gets the one-sided action.

Despite the rules not being officially set for this showdown, it won’t be MMA rules. And even if the gloves are on the smaller side, my guess is they will still be bigger than MMA gloves, which will be another perceived advantage for Fury.
