Tyson Fury retirement odds sensationally slashed
The odds of Tyson Fury announcing a shock retirement have been slashed, according to bookie SportNation.bet.
Following his draw with Deontay Wilder in Los Angeles the firm have been forced to slash the odds of Fury hanging up his gloves for good next year to just 9/2 (from 10/1).
However a rematch with Wilder still remains the firm favourite at 1/8, with odds of 1/5 suggesting the bout will take place before either one fights the waiting Anthony Joshua.
There has also been considerable betting interest in the location of such a rematch, with Old Trafford in Fury’s hometown proving popular at 10/1.
SportNation spokeswoman Georgia Wilson said: “When it comes to Fury being unconventional, all bets are off.
“Whilst fans and bookies alike would be devastated should he call time his career, the odds suggest he might not want to run the risk of being robbed again.”
She added:”However, should the rematch go ahead, having been knocked down not once but twice and coming back with a vengeance, it’s a certainty the Old Trafford, Wembley or Vegas crowd are in for a treat again.”
