Bruce has ‘Eye of the Tiger’ in potential Poyet boxing bout
Steve Bruce would come out on top if he were to ever step inside the ring at face-off against Sunderland adversary Gus Poyet.
That is according to the latest odds from Ladbrokes, which have the Hull City manager as the 1/3 favourite to defeat the Uruguayan in a boxing match
The former Brighton manager is the underdog for victory in any potential match-up, with the bookmaker pricing the South American at 5/2 for the win.
A draw, meanwhile, is priced at 20/1, though with plenty of bad blood between the pair, such an outcome looks highly unlikely.
These latest prices follow-on from a touchline bust-up between the pair in which the Tigers manager reacted angrily to something said by his Uruguayan counterpart, after he was sent to the stands.
Sunderland escaped the KC Stadium with a point on Tuesday night to leave the Black Cats 16th and just a point and a place behind Hull in the Premier League standings.
Despite this result, Poyet has emerged as the new front-runner to be the next Premier League manager to leave his post with the ex-Chelsea and Tottenham player now 2/1 to exit.
Bruce, by contrast, is back at 20/1 having previously led the way in the market.
A fine run of results have helped ease the pressure on the Hull boss but his team remains just four points off the drop-zone.
