84% of punters favour Wilder over Fury in potential bout
Now Tyson Fury has dispatched of challenger Francesco Pianetta all eyes will be on the heavyweight bout of the year.
Fury will take on Deontay Wilder in Las Vegas but our punters think the Bronze Bomber will retain his crown against The Gypsy King.
Our traders make Wilder the slight favourite at 5/6, with Fury a touch behind at 10/11.
And it appears you agree with us with a staggering 84% of all bets placed have been in favour of the American.
The bout is increasingly likely to be scheduled for a November date. If the result does match the betting patterns then Fury, at 27-0, will be in for the first loss of his pro career.
Ladbrokes Alex Apati said; “We’ve pushed Fury’s odds out for this clash following his performance at the weekend. Our traders clearly aren’t convinced with The Gypsy King and punters seem to think he’ll face the first defeat of his professional career later this year.”
Wilder looked set to fight Anthony Joshua in a heavyweight unification fight, but that can wait as the Gypsy King looks to make his big comeback.
If Fury does win then he’ll claim Wilder’s WBC title, the only belt he didn’t hold after beating Wladimir Klitschko in 2015.
Dillian Whyte might have a say next year, but a win for Wilder and there’s seemingly only one man left in his path.
