Although rumours were going around that the hugely anticipated re-match between Tyson Fury and Wladimir Klitschko had been set for May, in Munich, it appears that neither the venue nor the date have been settled.

Today, in the press, Tyson Fury reveals that a unique setting was offered for the fight, a setting that would have precluded all but a handful of fight fans from seeing the bout.

Apparently a Sheik, out in Dubai, offered to stage the fight on his yacht, with Tyson describing the offer as thus,

?We had negotiations to have it on a cruise ship.

?A sheikh in Dubai owned a yacht, which will only fit 120 people.

?He didn?t want to broadcast it ? just sell 120 tickets at $1 million.?

Now that would have been a surreal event, although the financial side of things would have supported the promotion.

Yesterday, continuing on a Tyson Fury theme, also saw the champion presented with the prestigious Ring magazine belt, which prompted Tyson to quip,

?I always said the Ring magazine belt hashtags you as #1 in the division.?
It does and you are #1Tyson my friend.
