Anthony Joshua 2/5 to beat Deontay Wilder in prospective 2018 fight

Joshua needs to get past Joseph Parker first

Coral make Anthony Joshua the 2/5 favourite to beat Deontay Wilder if the two heavyweight world champions meet in 2018.

Our traders have priced the big-hitting American star at 15/8 to win in a clash that would almost certainly unify every heavyweight belt.

Wilder put on an impressive performance in beating Luis Ortiz last weekend. The 32-year-old from Alabama withstood some big punches from his opponent before clubbing Ortiz in a stoppage win.

“Joshua and Wilder look sure to meet in the near future in what is likely to be a huge unification fight.

And if that bout does materialise, AJ will be the favourite to win the contest in what could make him the first undisputed world heavyweight champion since Lennox Lewis in 2000,” said Coral’s John Hill.

Joshua is set to face WBO world champion Joseph Parker later this month where he is 1/12 to beat the man from New Zealand.
