As can be seen from the Tyson Fury odds and the Anthony Joshua odds in the table above, Fury is the favourite to win this fight. If you are into your boxing bets and bet Tyson Fury with a bookmaker such as William Hill, you will make a €0.53 profit with every euro that you spend. So, if you were to place €10 on the Tyson Fury fight and he went on to win, you would make a €5.30 profit.

On the other hand, if you think Joshua will win, then the Anthony Joshua betting odds with William Hill are 11/8. So, if you have a William Hill account and you make a €10 Anthony Joshua fight bet, you will walk away with a profit of €13.80 if he went on to win. The fact that you would make a much larger profit with the Joshua fight odds goes to show much of a favourite the Gypsy King is to win the fight.

Fury and Joshua are both impressive specimens, with the former standing at 6 foot 9 inches tall with an arm reach of 85 inches, while the latter stands at 6 foot 6 inches tall with an 82-inch arm reach. Therefore, Fury has the advantage here as his longer reach means he will be able to attack Joshua from further away, while steering clear of Joshua's jabs.

Tyson made his professional boxing debut way back in December of 2008. This fight was against Bela Gyongyosi, and Fury dispatched him with easy to show his class. Then, in 2015, he took on Wladimir Klitscko and sent ripples through the boxing world by defeating him and becoming the heavyweight champion of the world.

After this fight though, he took a 3-year hiatus from the sport because of his mental health problems that caused his weight to balloon to 400lbs. When he returned to the ring in 2008, he took on Sefer Seferi and won easily. Then, about 6 months later, he took on Deontay Wilder - many experts believed that he should have win the fight, but it was scored as a draw instead. In 2019, he beat Otto Wallin and Tom Schwarz, and had a rematch with Wilder in 2020, where he knocked him into submission in the 7th round.

Joshua first came to prominence in the boxing world in 2012 when he won an Olympic gold medal at the London Olympics. The following year, he became a professional and swept aside anyone who decided to challenge him. In April of 2016, he got his first shot at a world title when he took on Charles Martin - he knocked him out in the 2nd round to earn the title of IBF heavyweight world champion.

Like Fury, Joshua's signature fight came against Klitschko. He took on the Ukrainian at a packed Wembley Stadium in April 2017, and knocked him to the canvas in the 11th round. Joshua's first blip inside the ring happened in June 2019, when he lost in the 7th round to Andy Ruiz Jr. This was a very embarrassing defeat as Ruiz was completely out of shape, but Joshua took this unexpected loss on the chin and won a rematch against him six months later. We are not sure that those who like to do a spot of betting on boxing took it on the chin though.

After a year out the ring thanks to the pandemic, the next AJ fight was against Kubrat Pulev on December the 12th 2020. He put in a strong performance and knocked him out in the 9th round.

Joshua, to date, has 24 wins and 1 defeat under his belt, with 22 of his wins being via knockout. Fury has 30 wins, 1 draw, and no defeats, with 21 wins being courtesy of a knockout. When it comes to power, the stats seem to suggest that Joshua has the advantage, as he has knocked out 92% of his opponents, while Fury has only knocked out 70% of his. Joshua is the less experienced boxer, with 6 fewer fights to his name and 81 fewer rounds.

Joshua has been victorious in 4 of his last 5 fights, knocking out two opponents and going the distance in the other 2 wins. On the other hand, when it comes to a Fury fight, he has knocked out 2 of his last 5 opponents and is currently unbeaten.

Joshua VS. Fury Pick

Fury knocked Wilder to the Canvas in the seventh round in 2020 and Joshua found himself on the canvas in the seventh round against Ruiz Jr back in 2019. Some might think it is a coincidence, but we feel that could be a bit more to it than just coincidence.

Fury actually did not knock Wilder out, but he gave his opponent such a battering during the fight that Wilder's corner felt that the only course of action was to throw the towel in for their man. Fury has never been known for knocking opponents out with one punch, but he dispatches them with plenty of accurate and hard punches.

In Joshua's recent fights, he has slumped a bit in the middle stages. As we know, he was defeated by Ruiz just after the halfway point, and Klitshcko knocked him down in the sixth round. Even Pulev, who is a lesser fighter than Ruiz and Klitschko, managed to get a bit of joy against him at the midway stage.

Back in 2013, Steve Cunningham put Fury down during the early stages of their fight, but the Gypsy King got back on his feet, brushed himself down, turned up the heat, and knocked Cunningham out in round seven. Therefore, we personally would not be too shocked to see something similar happen.

Prediction: Tyson Fury to Win in Round Seven.

Joshua VS. Fury Best Bet

For all his nimble footwork and boxing skills, Fury still gets punched quite a bit in the ring. Wilder, during their first fight, knocked him down twice, and Cunningham and Neven Pajkic also knocked him to the canvas. Fury has not stepped into a ring for more than a year now, and this means that he could be a little bit ring rusty.

Joshua has an excellent record of knocking his opponents down, having knocked down all but one of his twenty-three opponents. Joshua definitely has the ability to knock Fury down, but the Gypsy King has a strong chin and can get back up after a heavy hit and carry on fighting like nothing happened. Fury to win the fight after being knocked down has really good odds, so it is something we recommend you consider.

Prediction: Fury to be Knocked Down but Still Win.
