Anthony Joshua 4/9 to beat Deontay Wilder

Bronze Bomber reportedly fronted up £50m offer

Coral make Anthony Joshua the 4/9 favourite to beat Deontay Wilder if the two heavyweight world champions meet in 2018.

The American champion is available in the betting at 15/8 to be victorious. A bout has long been in the works. But sources in the media today have said a deal could be close, with Wilder offering Joshua big money to fight in the US.

“This fight could smash all records for the amount of money bet on a boxing contest before and if it does go ahead this year, Joshua is the odds-on favourite to inflict the first defeat on Wilder’s professional career and as a result become the undisputed heavyweight world champion,” said Coral’s John Hill.
