Anthony Joshua odds-on to beat Klitschko in potential bout

| 02.11.2016

It’s hard to keep up with the hype surrounding Anthony Joshua these days. The IBF world heavyweight champion has only recently arranged a fight with Eric Molina and this morning it’s been announced that the WBA have sanctioned a potential bout with Wladimir Klitschko for Spring 2017.

Our traders have reacted quickly to the news with unbeaten Joshua installed as an 8/11 shot for victory against the Ukrainian should the bout take place.

Klitschko is rated as the 11/10 outsider while the draw is available at odds of 33/1.

Given the fact that the British star has to take care of Molina first-up there’s been some scepticism voiced on Twitter.

However, should Joshua duly oblige in Manchester on December 10 then the clamour around a super-fight for the vacant WBA strap will only intensify.

Of course, this isn’t the first time we’ve all got excited about the possibility of the Watford fighter taking on Dr. Steelhammer.

However, unlike the previously messy attempts to broker a deal, this latest announcement appears to suggest that the fight we all want to see could be closer than ever before.

How would you call a fight between Joshua and Klitschko?
