The heavyweight fight is now headed to a purse bid that will take place on July 6th according to a report from ESPN. Both sides are going to continue to try to make a deal in the coming days to prevent the purse bid from happening. Klitschko is coming off a less than stellar performance against Bryant Jennings in the United States while Fury defeated Christian Hammer back in February.
