Billy Joe Saunders bets BIG on Tyson Fury

Billy Joe Saunders is no stranger to the odd flutter or trip to the Casino, I mean who can blame him, he’s earned it! As his long-time friend and stable mate Tyson Fury takes on the fight of his life on Saturday for the WBC Heavyweight crown against Deontay Wilder, Billy has had a few quid on it. Billy Joe posted on his instagram account this afternoon placing a bet in a Ladbrokes store. I bet the young lad in the clip could hardly believe his eyes when Billy Joe Saunders walked in handed him a slip for Tyson to win with a stake of £70,000. That’s right 70 big ones on Tyson Fury to beat Deontay Wilder with odds of 11/8. Billy Joe Saunders split the bets over two slips so a later post showed one at 50k and one at 20k.

Billy Joe Saunders bet slip for £30,000 on Fury to win.
Billy Joe Saunders bet slip for £50,000 on Fury to win.

Billy Joe Saunders was quoted as saying that if Tyson wins ‘there will be a little drink in it for this young man’ – maybe enough to drown! If Tyson Fury wins he will walk away with a nice pay day himself but importantly the WBC Heavyweight Championship of the world. Billy Joe Saunders will walk away with a whopping £166,250 (inc stake). Nice work if you can get it.
