Fury 3/1 To Defeat Klitschko

With Tyson Fury set to fight Wladimir Klitschko in October, William Hill offer 3/1 that he can do what David Haye and Dereck Chisora could not and defeat the Ukranian pugilist. Klitschko is 1/4 with the draw 25/1.


The heavyweight division carries a great deal of promise for British fighters at the moment and William Hill are offering odds on who will hold a world title belt (or will have held a belt) come the end of next year. Anthony Joshua is a 4/7 shot with Tyson Fury Even money.


“Tyson Fury will be the next Brit to take a tilt at Klitschko but the odds suggest he will fall short just like Haye and Chisora,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. “He has every chance of getting his hands on a belt in the next 18 months or so though.”
