Tyson Fury favourite to be Anthony Joshua’s next fight
WBC champion Tyson Fury is the most likely name to step into the ring next with Anthony Joshua, according to our traders.
After Joshua defeated mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev at Wembley on Saturday, it’s now 11/8 that Fury steps up next.
It would be the bout the boxing world would love to see, as two British fighters clash to be crowned the first undisputed world heavyweight champion since Lennox Lewis in 2000.
Although Fury called out AJ straight after his bout with Pulev, there may be one sticking point. Oleksandr Usyk is Joshua’s next mandatory challenger and is looking to make a fight happen in 2021 too.
It’s 2/1 that the Ukrainian is up next, with 11/4 the price for a bout with the Bronze Bomber, Deontay Wilder.
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Fans are crying out for AJ v Fury and they may well get their wish early next year if the latest odds are anything to go by.”
