Fury Cut For Klitschko Victory After Manchester Date Announced

With the news that Fury and Klitschko II is taking place in Manchester rather than Germany, William Hill have cut the price of Tyson Fury winning to 4/5 from 10/11 while Klitschko has been eased from 10/11 to Even money to win the bout.

“Had the fight taken place in Germany, you would have thought that the ‘home’ advantage would have benefitted Klitschko, however, with that taken away from him, we think that a enthusiastic Manchester crowd behind Fury could spur him on to defend the titles that he took from the Ukrainian last year,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.

Fury vs Klitschko II: 4/5 Fury; 1/1 Klitschko; 22/1 Draw

Fight to go the distance: 8/15 yes; 11/8 no
