THE first press conference for the WBC heavyweight fight between Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury will take place on Monday, promoter Frank Warren has said.

Press Association Sport understands that a United States venue will this week be revealed for December 1 or 8, having been under negotiation since Wilder travelled to Belfast to watch Fury outpoint Francesco Pianeta last month.

Las Vegas remains the likeliest destination, and Warren told IFL TV: “It’s been about deciding what venue it will go to. It’s not an issue because it’s a nice problem, it’s who is going to put up the most money.
