Odds courtesy of bet365 as of May 16, 2021.

Who is the favorite to win Fury vs Joshua? 

Fury is the early betting favorite at -188, while Joshua comes back at +137 to win the fight. The Gypsy King is coming off a seventh-round TKO win over Deontay Wilder in February 2020. Fury briefly held the WBA, IBF, WBO, and the IBO World Heavyweight titles after defeating Wladimir Klitschko in 2015 but soon after vacated those titles for a variety of reasons.

After more than two years away from the ring, the 32-year-old Fury returned in 2018 and has been on a tear. Fury has compiled a 30-0-1 record over his career with his lone blemish being a draw against Wilder in 2018. 

The underdog Joshua, 31, is fresh off a ninth-round knockout victory over Kubrat Pulev in December.

When will Fury vs Joshua happen? 

On May 16, Fury confirmed on his Twitter account that the fight would take place on Saturday, August 14. 

Where will Fury vs Joshua take place? 

Fury also confirmed that the bout would take place in Saudi Arabia although the venue has yet to be announced. Joshua's second fight against Andy Ruiz took place at Diriyah Arena in Saudi Arabia.

How to bet boxing odds 

The main betting option for boxing is moneyline wagering – betting on who you think will win the bout - with the moneyline price on that fighter determining how much you could win on your bet.

For example, Fighter A is a -165 favorite against Fighter B, who is a +145 underdog. 

  • Fighter B +145

This means that on a $100 bet, you'll stand to win $145 if Fighter B wins the fight.

  • Fighter A  -165

This means that if you wagered on Fighter A, you would need to bet $165 to profit $100 on a Fighter A victory.

Boxing events also offer total or Over/Under bets on the number of rounds a bout will go, as well as alternative wagers such as method of victory (knockout, DQ or decision), round of victory, and prop bets.

Where can I bet on Fury vs Joshua odds?

Since both fighters have such high profiles many online sportsbooks will offer early Fury vs Joshua betting odds. That said, many of those odds require the fighters to compete by a certain date for the wager to stand.

Once a date has been agreed upon, expect online sportsbooks and casinos to put additional Fury vs Joshua odds on the board. Check out the top sportsbooks in your region and see what Tyson Fury vs Anthony Joshua fight odds they have available.
