BetStars Director of Trading Ian Marmion said: “Hughie Fury and Joseph Parker go head-to-head for the first time at the Manchester Arena on Saturday night for the chance to seize Mike Tyson’s former WBO belt.
Fury, the younger cousin of Tyson, will be looking to upset the odds and is priced at 21/20 with BetStars to dethrone the defending WBO world champion in front of a home crowd and clinch his first world title. It looks to be good value in what promises to be a closely contested 12 rounder between two up-and-coming prospects.
“Both boxers will be seeking a unification showdown with WBA and IBF champion Anthony Joshua and we think scorecards will be the most likely way to split these two boxers, with Fury just edging the Kiwi. BetStars customers can back the 23-year-old Mancunian to win by decision or technical decision at 15/8, while the odds for the fight to go the distance currently stand at 8/11.”
