TONY BELLEW will rematch David Haye on May 5 next year. This in itself was rescheduled after Haye tore his left biceps while training for the original December 17 date for the rematch. Haye snapped his Achilles tendon when he lost his first fight with Bellew earlier this year.

Yet the odds suggest Haye will avenge March defeat despite his injuries.

Betway’s Alan Alger said, “Despite his long-standing injury problems, we still have David Haye as favourite to beat Tony Bellew in their rematch which was announced for May 5.

“A fully-fit Hayemaker is one of the most dangerous punchers in the world, and given he’s expected to make a full recovery from bicep surgery, he’ll enter as favourite at 2/5 for the postponed bout.

“However, as proved in the first fight, Bellew shouldn’t be written off. He can still be backed at 15/8 to inflict a second defeat upon Haye, a result which would all but end the former two-weight world champion’s boxing career.”

Tyson Fury vs Tony Bellew

FORMER world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury will finally have his hearing with the national anti-doping panel in December. This could pave the way for a boxing comeback, but who should Fury fight next year? Now with David Haye injured, Tyson Fury vs Tony Bellew is an option being discussed.

Betway’s Alan Alger, said: “No one would have envisaged a heavyweight clash between Tyson Fury and Tony Bellew a year ago, but at 6/4, we think a domestic dust-up is well on the cards for 2018.

“The pair have called each other out on several occasions over the past week, and with Bellew-Haye II in severe doubt, the Bomber may cash in on a fight with the self-titled “Gyspy King”.

“Fury last fought in November 2015, but we still have him as heavy favourite at 1/10 to defeat Bellew, who’s likely to struggle with the former heavyweight champ’s superior size.”

WBA and IBF world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua is the well-fancied favourite at 2/5 in a title-unification clash with WBC world champion Deontay Wilder, according to Betway.

Wilder, who took his career record to 39-0 on Saturday night, quickly “declared war” on his heavyweight rival in his post-fight interview and has called on the Brit’s promoter Eddie Hearn to make the fight a reality in recent days.

However, at 7/4, the leading online bookmaker thinks ‘The Bronze Bomber’ is unlikely to inflict a first defeat of AJ’s professional career.

In what would be the most lucrative heavyweight showdown in recent years, Wembley has emerged as the most logical location to host the fight at 5/2.

The national stadium is touted for its second heavyweight blockbuster in as many years, whilst Twickenham and Old Trafford have been earmarked as possible venues at 8/1.

Joseph Parker heads betting of AJ’s next opponent

Anthony Joshua is 7/4 to meet Joseph Parker in his next fight following the news the WBO champion is being lined-up as AJ’s next opponent.

Negotiations for a fight have begun between both teams, and with Joshua-Wilder likely to wait until the summer of 2018, a bout against Parker in the spring looks to be edging closer.

However, Joshua may not be best pleased with Wilder’s continued verbal assaults, and he’s still 7/2 to be enticed into a bout with the trash-talking American next.

Betway’s Alan Alger said: “Despite a devastating KO win on Saturday night which took him to 39-0,  Wilder’s resume remains light. He does not have as significant a victory on his CV as Joshua recorded for his Klitschko epic, and we have AJ as 2/5 favourite to defeat Wilder.

Anthony Joshua

“There’s no doubt the contest belongs in a stadium, and it’s 5/2 for AJ to fight at Wembley for the second time in his career in a showdown with the Bronze Bomber.

“With that fight set for a summer date, AJ is likely to fight in between, and WBO champion Joseph Parker has emerged as 7/4 favourite to step into the ring with the Brit next.”

Deontay Wilder v Bermane Stiverne II Preview, Betting Tips and Odds

Another heavyweight title defence takes place this weekend at the Barclays Center in New York, as the WBC champion Deontay Wilder takes on Bermane Stiverne for a second time. A week after Anthony Joshua defeated Carlos Takam to retain his WBA, IBF and IBO titles, boxing eyes will shift across the Atlantic to see what sort of performance Wilder will be able to showcase.

Wilder and Joshua are unquestionably the big guns in the heavyweight division with the blockbuster clash being lined up for 2018 in what most likely will be the big unification fight. The America is unbeaten in 38 with 37 KO’s, Stiverne the only one to go the distance with “The Bronze Bomber” back in 2015. Boxing News cast their eye over the fight exclusively for Betsafe.

Betway go 6/4 for Anthony Joshua to fight Tyson Fury in 2018 following the news of the latter’s intention to return to the ring.

Fury, who has been sidelined since November 2015 with personal issues, has seen AJ pick up the WBA, IBO, and IBF world titles which he captured when he defeated Wladimir Klitschko two years ago.

However, a series of social media posts this week has seen Fury outline his plan to come out of retirement for mega fights with Joshua and WBC champion Deontay Wilder (7/2) in 2018.

Both Joshua and Fury hold an unbeaten professional record, and Betway’s odds indicate Joshua is favourite at 8/11 to take Fury’s 0 if the pair meet.

“The Gypsy King” will certainly be gunning for the belts he never lost and the leading online bookmaker have valued him at 7/4 to win a world title in 2018.

Wembley 6/4 favourite to host Fury-Joshua clash

 Wembley is 6/4 favourite with Betway to host the encounter in what would be AJ’s second trip to the national stadium.

Manchester’s Old Trafford has also been touted and The Theatre of Dreams is valued at 11/4 ahead of the bright lights of Las Vegas, which is an 8/1 chance.

Betway’s Alan Alger, said: “Boxing fans have craved this British heavyweight tussle for years, and with Tyson Fury edging ever closer to a long-awaited return, we’re 6/4 for the pair to meet in 2018.

“It’s arguably the biggest fight in British boxing history and they’ll need a stadium to match the event. Wembley looks a likely prospect at 6/4, whilst Old Trafford remains in the mix at 11/4.

“Many boxing purists will have Fury as favourite, but we’re 8/11 that Joshua is victorious given his active status in recent years.”

Anthony Joshua vs Carlos Takam Preview Betting Tips and Odds

Twelve days out from a fight he has been waiting months and months to have, Kubrat Pulev had to withdraw from his mandated clash with IBF and WBA heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua.

The hulking Bulgarian suffered a shoulder injury in sparring and, in the final week of his camp, had to give up a multi-million pound payday. However, the show must go on.

Instead, Joshua will fight Carlos Takam at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales on October 28. We detail how this came about and pick apart the fight. Click below to read on.
