Klitschko v Fury undercard takes shape, Hughie Lewis awaits foe

Phil Jay 27/11/2015

The undercard for Saturday night’s massive heavyweight title clash featuring all-conquering champion Wladimir Klitschko and challenger Tyson Fury is almost finalized.

For an event of such magnitude, it’s surprisingly low-key as only a ten-rounder involving promising Polish-born German Robert Tlatlik backs up the main event.

Tyson’s cousin Hughie has a place on the bill, although securing a decent opponent at just 24 hours notice will be tough following the withdrawal of both Nicolai Firtha and Adnan Redzovic in the past week.

The bill will be a mixture of undefeated talent such as Jono Carrol, Samy Reid Musa and Patrick Korte, blended with some high-profile names from the AIBA’s pro/amateur circuit at the APB.

Here’s the current line-up as it stands on Friday:

10 – Super Lightweight
Robert Tlatlik 17-0 v
Said Rahimi 9-2

10 – Heavyweight
Hughie Fury 17-0
v TBA

8 – Super Featherweight
Jono Carroll 8-0 v
Miguel Gonzalez 13-3

6 – Super Middleweight
Samy Raid Musa 8-0 v
Jay Spencer 10-0

4 – Heavyweight
Patrick Korte 2-0 v
Moises Distino 2-0

Heavyweight (APB)
David Graf v
Anton Pinchuk

Klitschko v Fury will be shown live on Sky Sports Box Office in UK and HBO in US
