Fury targets Klitschko and is 4/1 to be heavyweight champ by 2014

| 07.07.2012

TYSON FURY’S odds of becoming a world heavyweight champion have been slashed by Ladbrokes.

Fury is now just 4/1 to secure the belt before January 1st 2014 and is the same price to be the next British boxer to do so. David Haye remains the 7/4 favourite in that market while David Price is 2/1, leaving Dereck Chisora (12/1) and Audley Harrison (25/1) understandably among the outsiders.

Further domestic glory looks like it may be on the cards as Kell Brook is also now just 6/4 to win any title in the same time frame.

Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: “Fury is quickly becoming a genuine contender and we respect him in his bid to become champion. We were impressed with Brook also and give him an even greater chance of getting his hands on a title.”
