Bookies trim odds after Joshua tweet
LADBROKES HAVE SLASHED ODDS for a potential bout between Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury taking place next year.
The Gypsy King has called out Joshua on several occasions over the last few weeks and the bookies have this morning trimmed odds from 4/1 to 3/1 for the pair to meet in the ring in 2018 after AJ finally responded on Twitter.
Should the two clash, it’s currently Joshua who’d be the 4/6 favourite to win, with Fury a slight outsider at 6/5, while the draw is priced up at 22/1.
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “An uncharacteristic tweet from AJ this morning has forced our traders to trim odds of a huge fight taking place next year – and as things stand a 2018 meeting between the two heavyweights has never looked more likely.”
