IBF/IBO and “The Ring Magazine” World Heavyweight Champion and WBA/WBO Super-champion Wladimir Klitschko will defend his titles against Tyson Fury on November 28 at ESPRIT arena in Düsseldorf.
Tickets keep their validity.
Originally scheduled on October 24th the fight has been postponed due to an injury of Wladimir Klitschko. After a comprehensive medical examination the champion has been given a green light today for the fight to proceed at the end of November.
“My injury will heal quickly enough for me to enter the ring on November 28. I will promptly continue my training camp preparations and, of course, I am very happy to still be fighting this year, especially for my fans who have already bought their tickets,” said Wladimir Klitschko.
Editor’s Note: Tyson Fury had originally stated that it was down to Sky Sports Box Office approving the date on November 28 which means the fight is set to be a pay-per-view affair in the UK just over a month after Kell Brook defends his IBF welterweight title on PPV.
There is also talk of Anthony Joshua v Dillian Whyte heading to the pay-per-view platform, although an official announcement is expected from Sky Sports to outline what is happening with the situation of all three events.
