It seems like the postponed fight between Wladimir Klitschko and Tyson Fury will take place in late November, possibly November 28th according to ESPN. In speaking to Fury’s manager, Mick Hennessy, the venue will be the same.
“It will be at the same arena, and we are hoping to have it happen late November or early December,” Hennessy told ESPN. “Wladimir is being seen by the specialist who treats the German national football team and they are going to work on it over the next few days.”
Klitschko injured his calf causing the delay to the much-anticipated fight. Hennessy says the date will need to coincide with available TV dates, which in the United States were being broadcasted on HBO and in the United Kingdom, a Sky TV PPV.
“We have got to match up what dates are good for the TV stations, but the stadium is OK,’ stated Hennessy.
For Fury its been an issue keeping his big fight dates in order. His fight with David Haye was scrapped twice and his fight with Derek Chisora was scrapped once. Now this fight with Wladimir Klitschko has a delay but Hennessy says the fight will definitely happen.
“It was like déjà vu for Tyson because two fights against David Haye were called off and the Dereck Chisora one was also postponed. He was upset initially, but it will be rescheduled very quickly and it will happen before Christmas.”
Fury went all out at the press conference before the injury, dressing up as Batman and tackling the joker. Hennessey says Fury saw a weakness in Klitschko.
“When Tyson does press conferences he plays with his opponent and he felt like he saw a weakness in Wladimir,” Hennessy told ESPN. “He was full of confidence and wanted the fight so bad, then there’s the shock of the postponement. But it’s not a long delay and he’s OK with that.”
