Tyson Fury stands on the cusp of facing Wladimir Klitschko for his WBA and WBO world heavyweight title belts, with both of the boxers representatives in negotiations for a clash to happen this year, possibly in the UK.
In the event that an agreement cannot be reached between the two camps, then the fight will go to purse bids.
After Klitschko defeated his last challenger unbeaten American contender Bryant Jennings on April 24 at Madison Square Garden in New York City, he said at the post fight press conference that his next challenger would be the unbeaten Fury, who stands in mandatory position. “I believe that this fight with Tyson Fury is going to look different.” said Klitschko.
Mancunian Fury (24-0, 18KOs) earned his shot after his 10th round stoppage of Dereck Chisora last November and then took a warm up fight against Christian Hammer in February winning by 8th round stoppage.
“If I ever get hold of Wladimir I will smash him in bits.” said Fury. “He is a shit-house man he wouldn’t spar his shadow.”
