I?m not so sure but read on.

Although many boxing pundits are of the opinion it could be a long time, if ever, before Tyson Fury gets Wladimir Klitschko into the ring for that mandatory defence of the WBO version of the heavyweight title, Tyson?s promoter reckons a mega-fight will happen in the summer of 2015.

Mick Hennessy not only reckons that the fight will happen but that it will, quite possibly, happen in the United Kingdom with Hennessy remarking to the media,

?I believe the fight against Wladimir will happen this year.

?Tyson wants it in a big way and Wladimir?s team like the idea of the fight because it?s the biggest one out there for them. It will happen where ever it commercially makes sense and that could mean over here. Team Klitschko are open to coming to the UK if the economics are right.?

Personally I?m not so sure that Wladimir would leave his German base to come to the UK, it came as quite a surprise to hear he was making his next defence in the USA.

I?m also not sure if the fight will actually happen, what with there now being talk of Wladimir fighting the ageing Shannon Briggs in the summer!
