Unbeaten Fury scored a points victory in their first bout in London in 2011 and he's 1/2 to beat him in Manchester's Phones4U Arena, with Chisora given odds of 13/8 to win.

Both heavyweights have improved greatly since, with Chisora earning stoppage wins in four of his last five bouts, and he's 7/2 to continue that trend against Fury.

Manchester-born Fury is 6/4 to stop Chisora, who has four defeats on his record, inside the 12 rounds, but David Haye is the only man to have knocked 'Del Boy' out.

Sky Bet's Dale Tempest said: "It's another fantastic re-match for British boxing fans and we, the bookmakers, are just as excited.

"Fury is the favourite but the initial odds are finely balanced and we're expecting a few shifts in the build-up to the fight in July."

The fight is billed as a WBO eliminator, with the winner set to challenge Wladimir Klitschko for the belt, providing the Ukrainian satisfies odds of 1/33 to beat Alex Leapai next month.
