Joshua v Fury: UK blockbuster not likely to happen before 2020, AJ slated as favorite to win
Tyson Fury’s return to the ring is imminent and Betway go 5/2 that he fights his way to a world title before the end of next year.
The former heavyweight world champion’s comeback looks likely to kick off this summer as he seeks a shot at Anthony Joshua, though the leading online bookmaker is as short as 1/4 for the two not to clash before 2020.
It’s 7/2 for the pair to step into the ring in 2019, where AJ is the 8/11 favourite and Fury 6/5.
Betway’s Alan Alger, said: “Tyson Fury will have to come through a few fights first before he’s ready for Anthony Joshua so 2019, at 7/2, or later looks likely for that British superfight.
“AJ-Fury is a tough fight to call, not least because the latter is so unpredictable, but we think Joshua would have the edge at 8/11.”
