It hasn't been long ago since the world's boxing heavyweight champion Tyson Fury's SPOTY dominance seemed to be undisputed. The last couple of weeks & months showed that this award is not going to fall into Fury's hands without a challenge!!!
The new SPOTY runner-up is Manchester United's forward Marcus Rashford, who dedicated lots of his time to charity and community support during the Premier League hiatus. What is more, a couple of his campaigns were quite successful.
Rashford managed to raise more than 20 million pounds for meals to vulnerable people across the UK, raised government's awareness about the matter, teamed up various funds to help some of the biggest homeless shelters, and even learned the basics of a sign language to help judge a poetry competition for kids with hearing problems.
Such actions were found quite appealing by thousands of Brits, which draw a ton of attention, and as a result, made Rashford a new favourite to get a SPOTY award this year. Top online bookmakers were among the first who responded to the matter. One of the leading online betting operators Betfred
has readjusted its odds and currently favours The Red Devils' forward over Tyson Fury.
What do you think? Are Betfred's oddsmakers going to be right once again? Let us know down in the comments below.
