Klitschko v Fury undercard: Hughie Fury faces Tony Visic

Phil Jay 28/11/2015

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

For an event of such magnitude, it’s surprisingly low-key as only separate bouts involving promising Polish-born German Robert Tlatlik and heavyweight prospect Hughie Fury back up the main event.

Hughie, top billing Tyson’s cousin, fights cruiserweight journeyman after bouts with Nicolai Firtha, Adnan Redzovic and Konstantin Airich all fell through in the past week. Fury, 23, holds a perfect 17-0 record and was hoping to showcase his talent in Dusseldorf against a bigger name until being forced to draft in the unheralded Croatian at the very last minute.

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:

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

8 – Heavyweight
Hughie Fury 17-0 v
Tony Visic 19-19-1

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
