Tyson Fury title fight vs Wladimir Klitschko is heading towards a purse bid & Briton's promoter Mick Hennessy is confident the fight will be staged in England. Fury (24-0, 18 KOs) is the mandatory challenger to world No.1 Klitschko (64-3, 53 KOs), who holds the WBA, WBO and IBF world title belts. Talks between the two camps have yet to result in an agreement and Hennessy believes the date and venue are most likely going to be decided by which promoter wins the purse bid next month. "Right now the fight looks like it's heading for a purse bid," Hennessy told ESPN.
Hennessy is working with promoter Frank Warren to stage Klitschko-Fury @ an outdoor stadium in England & to be broadcast live on subscription channel BoxNation.
Both fighters are coming off wins. Klitschko won by UD over Bryant Jennings in New York and Fury defeated Christian Hammer in February.
