Music superstar Justin Bieber is already an underdog for victory after calling out Hollywood royalty Tom Cruise for a fight.

Bookmakers have released odds on a celebrity super fight between Cruise and Bieber, and they make grim reading for the millions of Belieber’s across the world.

Cruise has been installed as the early odds-on favourite to win the fight at 8/11, with bookies taking no chances on the Mission Impossible’s years of fighting on the silver screen.

On the flip side, Canadian crooner Justin Bieber is even money (1/1) to emerge from the celebrity scuffle victorious.

However, it may not all be as straightforward as it seems, with the majority of early money from Oddschecker punters being placed on Bieber.

In total, 74% of all bets in the market have backed the “Baby” singer to beat the heartthrob, with only 26% of punters backing Cruise.

It hasn’t taken long for UFC superstar Conor McGregor to lend his support, claiming his McGregor Sports and Entertainment business could host the fight.

McGregor said: ‘If Tom Cruise is man enough to accept this challenge, McGregor Sports and Entertainment will host the bout.

“Does Cruise have the sprouts to fight, like he does in the movies? Stay tuned to find out!”

Oddschecker spokesperson Callum Wilson: “The rise of celebrity white-collar fights has been on the rise recently. Who can forget the ‘spectacle’ that was Wayne Bridge vs Spencer Matthews last year?

“This fight has a little more star power, to say the least, with one of the biggest names in the movies taking on one of the highest selling artists of all time.

“Cruise’s performance in Far and Away highlighted his (on screen) boxing ability. On the other hand, Bieber seemed to struggle in a scuffle with Orlando Bloom a few years ago. Expect Cruise’s odds to drop as time progresses.”
