It's been a busy few months for boxing's top Heavyweights, with first Deontay Wilder, then Anthony Joshua, and now Tyson Fury all viewing action. Fury headlines a card ESPN this Saturday against Tom Schwarz. Here are the odds, courtesy of Bovada:
Tyson Fury -3000
Tom Schwarz +1100
So Fury is, understandably, the massive favorite. The lineal champion remains undefeated in his profession and is 2-0-1 considering making his return to the game this past year. His last fight was that the controversial draw with Wilder that many felt Fury won. Schwarz is 24-0 with virtually his entire career accepted place in Germany until now. He's taking a big step up here.
For contrast, Wilder was around -1000 for his last fight against Dominic Breazeale, while Joshua was -3000 against Andy Ruiz. Joshua naturally lost that struggle, and I am sure that angry will cause some to place money on Schwarz here. I would say don't do such a foolish thing, but I'd have said the same thing about Ruiz, so hey, you would you.
Listed below are a few other odds for upcoming struggles that are notable:
Mairis Breidis -260
Krzysztof Glowacki +200
Keith Thurman -135
Manny Pacquiao +105
Ultimately, it looks like we are really heading for Wilder vs. Fury 2, and chances are out for what would be a massive rematch there. Right now chances for both men are virtually... indistinguishable, with Wilder in -125 and Fury at -105. I favored Fury last timeI thought he won last time, also I'll favor him here, though certainly would advise seeing the way he looks Saturday night before actually committing to anything.
