Oddsmakers have wasted no time in coming up with a price for Tyson Fury’s next bout.
Fury is coming off Saturday’s dominating performance against Deontay Wilder as a small underdog. The pair had boxed to a split draw 15 months ago, but Fury left no question unanswered in the rematch.
The contract for Saturday’s fight included a rematch clause which gives Wilder’s team 30 days to exercise their option for a third fight between the two heavyweight boxers. The purse would be split 60-40 in Fury’s favor if the fight happens.
Fury could also face Anthony Joshua in a four-belt unification fight — one that would crown an undisputed world heavyweight champion. BetOnline is not expecting that fight to happen this year, listing ‘no’ at -260 odds and ‘yes’ at +200 for the 2020 calendar year.
As for Fury, he expects Wilder to exercise the option for a third fight.
“I need to enjoy this victory and Deontay will need time to recover from the fight, but I’m almost sure that he will take a rematch because he’s a dynamite puncher,” Fury said. “At any time he can take somebody out. With that danger, then you’re always in a fight. I’m pretty sure we’ll run it back again if he wants to.
“But if he doesn’t want to, these are my promoters and whatever they want to do, I’m happy with. Whoever’s next will get the same treatment, that’s for sure.”
The Westgate SuperBook lists Fury at -250 in a potential rematch with Wilder, who is +200.
BetOnline lists Wilder at -130 to be knocked down first, but has Fury at -130 to be the first boxer to bleed. The over/under for the rematch is 9.5 rounds, with -120 juice on both sides.
If Wilder does not exercise his rematch clause, Fury will likely face Joshua. Fury is listed at -300 at the SuperBook, leaving Joshua as a +240 underdog.
However, Bovada lists Fury at a much cheaper -190 price vs. Joshua
