It appears we're getting another boxing vs. MMA megafight, but this time it's the big boys who will do battle as we look at the Tyson Fury vs. Francis Ngannou odds via our best sports betting apps.

When Francis Ngannou chose to walk away from the UFC, he did so likely with a fight against Tyson Fury atop his wish list. Well, be careful what you wish for.

After teasing fight fans for months, it appears Fury and Ngannou will battle for the honor of the "baddest man on the planet." While the fight will go on the official records of the respective fighters, it won't be for the WBC title, WBC officials confirmed to MMA Fighting.

According to Ariel Helwani, it will be fought under the official rules of professional boxing, with three judges scoring the bout ringside. Fury and Ngannou will fight in a regulation boxing ring under the standard boxing rules, so the former will certainly have a massive advantage.

It's set to go down on Oct. 28, 2023, in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

Will the former UFC heavyweight champion pull off one of the biggest upsets in combat sports history, or will boxing's self-proclaimed lineal champion demolish the MMA fighter, as the early Fury-Ngannou odds suggest?

Here are the Tyson Fury vs. Francis Ngannou betting odds (odds via our best sports betting sites).

Tyson Fury vs. Francis Ngannou odds analysis

Among our best sportsbooks, only bet365 is offering odds on the October fight. With the fight still many months away and some doubt remaining as to whether it'll actually happen, the only available betting market is the moneyline.

Fury is understandably a heavy -1000 favorite. For context, Floyd Mayweather opened as a -2000 favorite against Conor Mcgregor (who opened at +900) before closing as a much longer -650 favorite. McGregor closed at +450.

Will we see similar trends with this superfight, with UFC fans pouring smaller, consistent bets in on Ngannou as sharps target Fury with big-money wagers?

Of note, McGregor was as short as +325 the week of his professional boxing debut. Therefore, for those looking to back Ngannou to pull off the upset, you'd be better off getting in sooner rather than later.

On the other hand, perhaps bettors will take note of that previous boxer vs. UFC fighter bout and push Fury's odds to shorten ever further. It'll be important to track all of the action in the coming months, and we'll provide regular updates to keep you informed!

Bettors can also track the Jake Paul vs. Nate Diaz odds leading up to their August fight for a better read on how a former UFC star measures up against a veteran of the boxing ring.
