Anthony Joshua 1-20 to make successful opening defence

| 25.04.2016

Leading bookmaker Coral has opened up betting on Anthony Joshua’s opening defence of his IBF world heavyweight title against American Dominic Breazeale this summer in which Joshua is 1-20 to come out on top, with the challenger 9-1 to cause an upset.

Fellow world champion Tyson Fury is also set to defend his world titles against Wladimir Klitschko in July in a rematch of their bout last year. Both men can be backed at 10-11 with Coral to win that fight.

Coral has also opened up betting on a potential bout between the two British heavyweight world champions in the near future where they make Joshua the 8-11 favourite and Fury 11-10 to win that huge domestic bout.

“Joshua is a long odds-on favourite to make a successful opening defence of his IBF world title against the unbeaten American. If he does avoid defeat in 2016, there could be a huge domestic bout against Tyson Fury to me made next year in which Joshua would start as the favourite in that fight,” said Coral’s John Hill.
