Boxing match betting odds - Deontay Wilder vs. Tyson Fury - Year is 2018. Earlier this evening, Tyson Fury did as expected and defeated Francesco Pianeta at Windsor Park in Belfast.

This was Tyson's second win in as many months, as he defeated Sefer Seferi in June.

After a period of lengthy inactivity, Fury is officially back and is set to take part in one of the biggest fights of his career - a major tilt against Deontay Wilder.

Wilder was initially looking to fight Anthony Joshua, though the two sides couldn't come to terms. Instead, Wilder will be taking on Tyson Fury next, while Anthony Joshua will be taking on Alexander Povetkin.

It is assumed that the winners of the two fights will face off against each other, though you never know in the world of boxing.

The undefeated Tyson Fury has opened as a coin flip against Wilder, while Wilder is a very slight favourite.
