Fury vs AJ Betting Analysis
If Joshua can come back and defeat Fury, he will suddenly become one of the best heavyweight boxers. Albiet his two losses to Usyk, he has a solid chance of taking Fury’s undefeated record and as they say you are only as good as your last fight.
Fury’s return from another short stint in retirement won’t come as a surprise to many. “The Gypsy King” can now challenge Joshua as he approaches the tail end of his successful heavyweight run.
Tyson Fury remains the betting favorite from when odds were initially released many years ago. If this fight had happened prior to AJ losing to Andy Ruiz, you could expect the odds to be flipped in Joshua’s favor.
Over the past year, we’ve seen Joshua range from +130 to +165 depending on which betting site you check. He fought Kubrat Pulev in December 2020 and defeated the Bulgarian by KO in the 9th round.
Then opening as a slight underdog against Usyk and lost two fights convincenly to the better boxer, although Joshua showed improvements in the rematch under new trainer Robert Garcia. The change clearly made improvements in Joshua’s peforace in the rematch, I expect to see Joshua implement as similar or even more aggressive approach against Fury.
Fury on the other hand returned to action in late 2021, with one of the most exciting fights of the year. A real war with Deontay Wilder where Fury stopped “The Bronze Bomber” in the 11th round. After the win, Fury decided to have a return fight in the UK. It was against old foe Dillian Whyte who he stopped with easy in the 6th round, to retaine WBC and The Ring heavyweight titles.
Joshua The Underdog Again
AJ is used to being the underdog this later stage of his career. Going back through all his most recent fights from 2016 to now, he was a major betting favorite by the public. Even for the Ruiz rematch, the oddsmakers knew the two-time unified world heavyweight champion would prevail. Then Joshua returned to face Pulev, as a massive +600 favorite.
When opening odds were released for Joshua vs Usyk, AJ was a slight favorite. Then by the time the fight started Usyk had taken the lead by the betting public as a -200 favorite. The rematch opening line remained simlaet to that closing line, with Usyk’s dominance being reflected as high as a -240 betting favorite over AJ.
Fury vs Joshua Date & Location
The preferred day is December 3, suggested by the Fury club, because of the ‘Battle of Britain’ clash of roughly 80 million pounds, which will also occur at this particular stadium. But it will be reserved as a backup date for the same day, if necessary.
