Tyson Fury vs Francis Ngannou Betting Odds

Fury vs Ngannou Betting Odds

The lineal boxing heavyweight champion of the world, Tyson “Gypsy King” Fury, has been exchanging jabs with UFC heavyweight contender Francis “The Predator” Ngannou on social media recently, with each vowing to cross over into the other’s domain for a match. Fury called out Ngannou for an MMA bout and the Predator has reached out to former lineal champion Mike Tyson for advice on beating the Gypsy King in the boxing ring.

Online sportsbook Bovada has released odds on whether the two will meet either in a cage or a boxing ring by the end of 2020, with “Yes” coming in at +450 and “No” coming back at -700.

Will Fury and Ngannou fight in a sanctioned boxing or mMA Fight in 2019 or 2020?

Will This Fight Happen?

Fury has been very active on social media recently showing off his MMA training sessions with UFC middleweight contender Darren Till. Additionally, the lineal heavyweight champ took his skills to the WWE in October as he collided with Braun Strowman at Crown Jewel. Meanwhile, a video came out with devastating knockout artist Ngannou chatting with Mike Tyson, who has agreed to train the Predator for a potential boxing match.

The big problem with this prop bet is the timeline for when this fight must take place. For you to win your wager, the two must square off by the end of next year and I don’t see that happening. Fury has his highly anticipated rematch with Deontay Wilder likely taking place in February 2020. If all goes well for the Gypsy King there, then he will likely have his sights set on the winner of the Anthony Joshua/Andy Ruiz rematch to unify the four major heavyweight titles before an MMA appearance.

As for Ngannou, he’s in a bit of an odd spot in the UFC as he appears to be the clear No. 1 contender to have a rematch with Stipe Miocic, but that fight may be awarded to Daniel Cormier. The Predator remains without a fight, however I think UFC president Dana White has some plans for him before even entertaining a crossover bout. So, all that being said, the “No” is the bet to make right now.

Cage or a Ring, Where Would This Fight Take Place?

UFC president Dana White has been standing pretty firm recently on cross-promotion fights under the UFC banner or bringing in non-MMA guys. But he did sign former WWE superstar CM Punk to a multi-fight deal, which blew up in White’s face with the poor performances by Punk. I see it more likely taking place in a boxing ring rather than a cage. Neither competitor has a strong wrestling background and they make their living off of striking, so the boxing ring would be the best avenue to showcase their skills.

That said, Fury has a wild personality that I’m sure Dana White would like to capitalize on and if he continues to improve his MMA skills as a whole, I wouldn’t be shocked to see him on a developmental contract, much like Greg Hardy. It would be a fun fight, especially in striking exchanges, but I don’t think we will be seeing this bout any time soon. We can all hope, though.
