The World Boxing Council (WBC) champion Tyson Fury (33-0-1, 24 KOs) is considered a clear favorite in a fight with mixed martial arts fighter Francis Ngannou from France. There is exactly one month left before the fight, which will take place in Saudi Arabia on October 28, and bookmakers have already decided on the favorite.
For Ngannou, who used to be the champion of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), entering the ring against Fury will be his boxing debut. Bets on his victory are accepted at odds of 7.50. The draw is estimated by the index of 17.00. And the odds on Tyson's success reach 1.07.
Analysts are firmly convinced that the fight will end early, with the odds of 1.20 offered for a knockout from the Gypsy King, as the Briton is called. Ngannou's similar success is listed at 8.00.
It should be noted that the fight will be a 10-round affair, and a special WBC belt will be at stake. Fury's title will not be up for grabs.
Earlier, Ukrainian unified heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk (21-0, 14 KOs) mocked the Fury-Ngannou fight. After that, manager Spencer Brown made a loud announcement of the fight between the British and the Ukrainian.
As reported by OBOZREVATEL, Tyson Fury's promoter Bob Arum made a sharp and categorical statement about his client's fight with Oleksandr Usyk. Another representative of the Briton, Frank Warren, expressed hope that the fight for the absolute title would take place. In his turn, former European Boxing Union (EBU) champion Spencer Oliver predicted the Ukrainian's defeat in the fight.
