Anthony Joshua opens as betting favourite over Francis Ngannou

Francis Ngannou almost shocked the world against Tyson Fury, but he’s still an underdog heading into his second professional boxing match.

Anthony Joshua opens as betting favourite over Francis Ngannou

Francis Ngannou nearly shocked the world towards Tyson Fury, however he’s nonetheless an underdog heading into his second skilled boxing match.

Opening odds for Ngannou’s just-announced combat with ex-champ Anthony Joshua have been launched, and the previous UFC titleholder stays within the underdog class, albeit not as deeply as for his combat this previous October with Fury.

SportsBetting.ag has set the opening odds for Ngannou vs. Joshua, which reportedly takes place March 9 in Riyadh, Saudia Arabia.

Anthony Joshua: -500

Francis Ngannou: +325

The percentages indicate Joshua has an 83 p.c likelihood of successful the bout. A $100 guess on the ex-champ would return $20. Ngannou, in the meantime, has a 25 p.c likelihood of successful, and a $100 guess would return $325.

The sportsbook provides Ngannou a significantly better likelihood of successful than his combat with Fury, which he misplaced through cut up resolution regardless of flattening Fury in a extremely aggressive combat. Fury opened at -1400 to Ngannou’s +750, placing an Ngannou win within the territory of huge upset.

Joshua was anticipated to face power-punching ex-champ Deontay Wilder after defeating Otto Wallin at Day of Reckoning this previous month, however Wilder misplaced to Joseph Parker in a giant upset. Joshua’s promoters clearly pivoted to Ngannou for the March 9 date, the initially deliberate host for Joshua vs. Wilder.
