Opening Boxing Odds: Anthony Joshua Opens as Betting Favorite Over Deontay Wilder

Wilder Joshua Betting Lines

After Deontay Wilder KO’d Dominic Breazeale in the first round on May 18, the talk soon turned to what’s next for “The Bronze Bomber”. A rematch with Luis Ortiz, Tyson Fury or something different? How about Anthony Joshua, the heavyweight champ currently holds five belts and is considered by many the #1 pound-per-pound heavyweight in the world.

Anthony Joshua is scheduled to face Andy Ruiz Jr on June 1 at MSG, after that Joshua was expected to rematch Dillian Whyte – but that appears to be off the cards now. According to SkySports Joshua’s ‘main objective’ is a fight against Wilder, then we could have a huge heavyweight unification fight on our hands.

Joshua’s manager Eddie Hearn spoke to iFL TV recently: “We all know it’s a gamble for everybody; one minute AJ is the big favourite, the next minute Wilder knocks someone out and he is the big favourite. But the whole point is: Are you ready? Do you want to do it?”

“That is a fight that has become, not just the biggest fight in boxing, but one of the biggest heavyweight fights of all time.”

Hearn is right the whole heavyweight division is a gamble and that’s what makes it so exciting. Styles makes fights and on the right night any one of the top 3 heavyweights could have the other ones number.
