Vegas is favourite to host the eagerly-anticipated heavyweight clash, according to odds
Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury’s mega fight next year will take place in Las Vegas, according to odds by bookie SportNation.bet.
The possible unification bout will be one of the biggest ever heavyweight matches in history and is 7/4 to take place in Las Vegas.
The location of Joshua’s previous fight, Saudi Arabia is next in the betting at 9/4. Joshua’s fight with Andy Ruiz drew criticism due to its location, but a return to the desert remains likely.
Eddie Hearn, Joshua’s promoter, has previously said the all-British fight is unlikely to take place in the UK. Wembley Stadium is 3/1 while Tottenham’s new stadium is 16/1, Old Trafford is 20/1 and the Principality Stadium in Cardiff is 33/1.
Madison Square Garden is an 8/1 outsider. If the fight is in Las Vegas, the 72,000-capacity Allegiant Stadium is 4/5 favourite, while the MGM Arena, the venue for Fury vs Wilder, is 2/1 and T-Mobile Arena is 7/2.
A left-field option could be the Stade Tata Raphael, the venue for The Rumble in the Jungle boxing match between Muhammad Ali and George Foreman in 1974, which is 200/1.
A SportNation.bet spokesperson said: “A fight as huge as this needs a location to fit the occasion and that’s why Las Vegas is the clear 7/4 favourite to host this historic event.
“For the many fight fans hoping for a closer venue to attend the match live, Wembley is the most likely venue, but at 3/1 it is likely to be held elsewhere.”
