Anthony Joshua vs Deontay Wilder Betting Guide

With boxing promoter Eddie Hearn bravely expanding his Matchroom operation into the US, the chances of an Anthony Joshua Vs Deontay Wilder having their heavyweight title unification bout in Las Vegas, is more of a possibility than ever.

But why would Anthony Joshua forfeit home advantage, when he’s made places like Cardiff and Wembley his fortress in recent years? Then again, Joshua and Hearn have true greatness in mind and “AJ” has often talked about his goal to fight overseas.

Where and when is Joshua v Wilder?

If pushed for a venue, Wembley Stadium would make sense. But Deontay Wilder is a hard negotiator too and in order to make this fight a reality, Anthony Joshua may need to swallow his home pride, and expand his fighting resume into America for the first time.

In terms of timeline for this fight, it could happen in 2018 toward the back-end, but if Wilder and his team don’t sign a contract soon, a big fight in Cardiff between Joshua and Alexander Povetkin looks the more likely outcome for 2018. The Anthony Joshua Vs Deontay Wilder fight is definitely going to happen, but like all these things in boxing, timing is everything.

Anthony Joshua vs Deontay Wilder Betting Tips

Our early big fight prediction for Joshua v Wilder is a simple, straight win bet on AJ…

  • Anthony Joshua to beat Wilder at 4/7 (1.57) with BetStars

So who is likely to win between the two heavyweight fighters; Anthony Joshua or Deontay Wilder?

 This is a classic match-up between the technical boxer (Joshua) and the wild and vicious brawler (Wilder).

We have seen against Whyte and Klitschko that Joshua can get rocked, can be hurt and can be put on the canvas, but he has the heart of a lion and recovered well after being dropped by Klitschko, so Wilder will need to find a very special punch for AJ to be KO’d.

Wilder does have tremendous power and throws looping shots from tricky angles, but ultimately boxing is boxing and Anthony Joshua’s tighter guard, patience and classic boxing ability should see him through this career defining test.
