Will Billy Joe KO bookies? Saunders sticks £70,000 on Tyson Fury to beat Deontay Wilder

Leigh Copson 29 Nov 2018

Former middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders has put his money where his mouth is, sticking £70,000 down on Tyson Fury to beat world heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder on Saturday night.


Saunders has some spare time on his hands after being banned for six months over a failed drugs test – a failure that cost him the WBO title – but he is certainly keeping an eye on the sport and appears confident that old pal Fury will be crowned world champion for the second time on Saturday.

WBC champion Wilder boasts a perfect 40-0 record, with 39 wins coming via stoppage, but that has not stopped Saunders from placing bets of £50,000 and £20,000 on Fury to topple the American at Ladbrokes.

“Let’s go champ,” he wrote on Instagram while posting a video of himself placing the two bets.

The bets were placed at odds of 11/8 and if Fury does dethrone ‘The Bronze Bomber’ in Los Angeles then Saunders will collect a cool £166,250 – but will Saunders be celebrating a windfall on Sunday morning or will it be £70,000 down the drain?

Since Saunders placed his bets Fury has drifted out to 6/4, with Wilder now a 4/7 favourite to win the fight and Even-money to win by KO, TKO or DQ at Ladbrokes.
