Tyson Fury has confirmed his long-awaited return to the boxing ring in June, but Bookmakers and the public alike are already looking ahead to when he might face Anthony Joshua.
Fury has been sidelined for over two-years due to out-the-ring issues, includes a drugs ban, but he now has his licence back and is ready to fight.
Fury’s last fight was in November 2015 when he claimed the IBF, WBA and WBO world titles from Wladimir Klitschko.
Now the heavyweight division has just two title holders in the shape of Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder and Fury has both in his sights.
“It is a matter of when rather than if Fury and Joshua clash,” said OddsMonkey spokesman Peter Watton.
“It is now round about Evens that the two will clash in the next 18-months before the end of next year.
“Fury, who himself remains undefeated, is 3/1 to win back at least one of his belts in the same time period.”
Selected Tyson Fury odds:
To face Anthony Josua by end of 2019 – Evens
To win world title by end of 2019 – 3/1
