Wladimir Klitschko is 5/2 with Betway to feature as James Bond’s next villain in the upcoming 2019 film after the big Ukrainian announced his retirement from boxing.

Klitschko, known as Dr Steelhammer, took the decision to hang up his gloves after a staggering 64 career wins and the odds suggest 007 could be his next opponent.

Betway go 5/2 he’s the next Bond villain, 7/2 he replaces his brother, Vitali, as Mayor of Kiev and 8/1 the ex-puncher becomes the next President of Ukraine.

Pulev likely next fight for AJ at 1/4

Back in the ring, Anthony Joshua has been denied a rematch with Klitschko and Betway offer 1/4 for his next opponent to be IBF mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev.

AJ is 11/4 to sign a deal to fight Deontay Wilder before the Pulev fight, which is 1/4 to go ahead first.

Betway’s Alan Alger, said: “Wladimir Klitschko has said he’s looking forward to his ‘second career’ and being the next James Bond villian at 5/2 looks very possible.

“Older brother Vitali headed straight into politics and is currently the Mayor of Kiev. We go 7/2 for Wladimir to fill his boots in that roll and 8/1 he takes Ukraine’s top job and becomes the country’s next president.

“Though many wanted to see a Joshua-Klitschko rematch, AJ must move on and mandatory IBF challenger Kubrat Pulev is fancied at 1/4 to be his next opponent. A mega-fight with Deontay Wilder is 11/4 to be the next on AJ’s agenda.”
