Joshua v Wilder: Shift in odds as undisputed clash moves a step closer, Povetkin / Haye shorten

The money has come for Deontay Wilder to be Anthony Joshua’s next opponent, with Betway cutting the WBC belt holder from 5/1 to 2/1 this morning.

The leading online bookmaker is reporting increased support for the Bronze Bomber off the back of his comments about fighting in the UK and is now joint-favourite to face Joshua next.

New York puncher Jarrell Miller remains 2/1 to get to AJ first, whilst Alexander Povetkin and, maybe most surprisingly of all the movers, David Haye have both been backed.

Povetkin is now just 5/2 having been as big as 10/1 immediately after his crushing KO win over David Price, while The Hayemaker is into 14/1 from 33/1.

Dillian Whyte is the big drifter, out to 10/1 having been priced up in the aftermath of Joshua’s victory over Joseph Parker at 2/1.

Betway’s Alan Alger, said: “The dust has settled on Saturday’s fight and punters are throwing confidence behind Anthony Joshua agreeing to make Deontay Wilder his next opponent.

“The big shift came after Wilder’s comments that he’d be open to fighting in the UK, while we’ve also seen good support for Alexander Povetkin and David Haye.”
