Tyson Fury has set his sights on rematching Deontay Wilder for the WBC world heavyweight title next year, but according to one bookmaker the former champion could opt to hang up his gloves instead.

Fury was controversially denied a second reign as heavyweight champion as three judges somehow combined to rule his fight with Wilder a draw on Saturday night, and following the bout he wasted no time in calling for a rematch with the unbeaten title-holder.

Bookmaker SportNation is 1/8 that the rematch does take place in 2019, but given Fury’s unpredictability there has been backing for him to call time on his in-ring career instead, and that has forced the bookie to slash the odds on him retiring next year to just 9/2 from 10/1.

“When it comes to Fury being unconventional, all bets are off,” SportNation spokeswoman Georgia Wilson told Bettingpro.com.

“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.”

SportNation is offering odds on the destination for the rematch though, with Fury and promoter Frank Warren eager to see it take place in the United Kingdom. 

Wembley Stadium – which has become a ‘home’ to the other heavyweight champion, Anthony Joshua – is the 4/9 favourite ahead of Las Vegas at 7/4, while Old Trafford is a 10/1 shot after Manchester United fan Fury suggested it as a possible destination to his promoter.
