Stop me if you think you’ve heard this one before. Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua are said to have agreed a deal to get it on in the super-fight everyone wants to see. The British bruisers have been sparring verbally for years and this looks to be the closest we’ve actually been to seeing them turning jibes into jabs.
The Gypsy King Fury is our 4/7 favourite while Olympic champ Josh is 11/8. Fury’s impressive rematch victory against Deontay Wilder gives him the edge, so AJ better start thinking up excuses – but the one about costumes being too heavy was already taken, unfortunately.
Now, we’ve heard this fight is on multiple times already, but is it for real this time? AJ’s promoter Eddie Heard says it’s a go, Fury’s man Frank Warren has described that claim as ‘bullsh*t’. Maybe not as close as we thought then… and our odds reflect this confusion.
We’ve priced it up as 1/10 to happen next year, while it’s 10/1 to go down in 2020. It’s 5/1 to not happen before 2022 and 7/1 for 2022 or later.
Seeing as the promoters can’t agree if the fight is on or not, what hope do we have of working out the location of this mythical scrap? Unlike AJ and Fury, our brave traders are never ones to shirk a challenge and think Saudi Arabia is a current front-runner to host the fight of the decade at 5/4. Big Tyson loves Las Vegas and that’s 2/1 while the scene of AJ’s most famous night, Wembley, is at 5s.
New York is 16s with Old Trafford, the home of Fury’s beloved Manchester United, at 20/1. Eddie Hearn’s ‘Fight Garden’ is 1000/1 and at this rate it’s more likely to be the promoters scrapping it out in the shrubbery than their two world-class clients.
