ANTHONY JOSHUA is tipped to retire with a perfect record, according to the latest odds from SportNation.Bet.

The bookies have opened betting on the first fighter to conquer Joshua, but make an unbeaten career the overwhelming 7/4 favourite.

His opponent this Saturday is an 8/1 shot to be the first man to take the champion’s scalp, behind domestic rival Tyson Fury who at 3/1 is the boxer deemed most likely to beat Joshua – should he suffer a defeat in his career.

Bets are also now being placed on Joshua’s next opponent and despite Fury looking the most likely to beat the champ, he’s a 14/1 longshot to be his next assignment, with the odds favouring a rematch with Dillian Whyte at 2/1 ahead of potential meetings with Jarrell Miller (3/1) and Deontay Wilder (4/1).

Georgia Wilson of SportNation.Bet said: “The betting firmly suggests regardless of who takes a shot at the champ, AJ is well on course for a perfect career and place in sporting history. In terms of his next opponent, plenty of fighters are in the queue but it looks like Whyte will get his rematch before AJ takes on another opponent from across the pond.”
