Tyson Fury begins slight underdog versus Deontay Wilder
Calls of “I’m knocking you out” from Tyson Fury are not backed up by Betway, who make Deontay Wilder the 4/5 favourite ahead of their expected December clash.
Fury vowed to down the Bronze Bomber immediately after overcoming Francesco Pianeta in Belfast on Saturday night, but the leading online bookmaker has the lineal world heavyweight champion as the even-money underdog for the WBC title fight.
Wilder can be backed at 6/4 to win by knockout while Fury is 15/4 to win inside 12 rounds.
Betway’s Alan Alger said: “Though he may not have been throwing the kitchen sink at it on Saturday night, Tyson Fury didn’t do enough to convince us that he should be favourite for the fight with Deontay Wilder.
“Wilder, although a number of his fights have been against much lesser opposition, has a remarkable record with 98 per cent of his wins coming by way of knockout and he’s our 4/5 favourite for when the two meet in December.”
