Tyson Fury’s fight with Deontay Wilder on Sunday morning will be the biggest bout of the year, and we’ve taken 33% more bets on it than Anthony Joshua’s against Joseph Parker in March.
And, though the odds are against the undefeated Brit – with Wilder odds-on (8/11) to retain his belt – more than three-quarters of the bets have backed Fury.
He is now rated as 13/10 to cause an upset, with his odds tumbling over the past week in the build up to the fight.
Asked about the big fight spokesman Paddy Power said: “Tyson being heavyweight champion of the world feels like a very retro headline – but one that could certainly be written on Sunday morning.
“Fury has talked a good game but, once he gets off the mic, Tyson’s boxing will have to do the talking – and our punters have overwhelmingly backed him to come good.”
