Betway release odds on Tyson Fury's opponent for June 9 comeback


Boxing star Tyson Fury is planning his return to the ring.

He is all set to face off inside the Manchester Arena on June 9, and all that remains is the announcement of who will be on the opposite side.

Fury made quite the name for himself during his time in the sport, maintaining an undefeated record of 25-0 (18 KOs), while winning numerous titles in the process.

What started out so great eventually turned sour, as his last competitive fight was in November of 2015.

Unable to grant a fight against his mandatory challenger Vyacheslav Glazkov due to agreeing to a rematch with Wladimir Klitschko, Fury was stripped of his IBF title, followed by the WBA, WBO, IBO, and lineal titles down to a medical investigation and personal issues, and two cancellations of the Klitschko rematch.

Over two years of inactivity from boxing followed, as he lost shape and obviously his dominance from the game.

It is now 2018 and Fury is eager to make his return to the sport and wants to make it a memorable return by extending his undefeated record against one of the top names in boxing at the moment.

Dominic Breazeale and Alexander Ustinov are Betway’s co-favourites to be Tyson Fury’s first opponent when he makes his long-awaited return.

Breazeale, whose only loss in professional boxing came at the hands of British superstar Anthony Josha back in 2016, comes in at 10/1, alongside Ustinov to face Fury on his return.

Brit Dillian Whyte's odds see him at 33/1 following his latest emphatic victory over Lucas Browne.

As for the man that Fury has most ambitiously sought to fight Anthony Joshua, it remains a very unlikely possibility, sitting at 100/1 odds alongside Tony Bellew and David Haye.

Betway’s Alan Alger, speaking about Fury's next opponent, said: “The boxing world has long been waiting for Tyson Fury to announce his comeback and now speculation has turned to who he will face on June 9.

“Dominic Breazeale and the ageing Alexander Ustinov are the 10/1 co-favourites to face him first in what must be a warm-up to bigger fights later on in the year.

“One of those could well be Anthony Joshua, but at 100/1 it looks unlikely that will be his first fight back.”

Other noticeable names and odds on the list are: Dereck Chisora (16/1), David Price (16/1), Charles Martin (16/1), Lucas Browne (16/1), Shannon Briggs (33/1), Luis Ortiz (33/1), and Daniel Dubois (50/1)

Regardless of who Fury will face off against on his return to the ring, it will be exciting to see him back out there after being inactive from the sport for so long following such a fruitful and successful career.
