THE October 24 world heavyweight title fight between WBA Super, IBF and WBO champion Wladimir Klitschko and his unbeaten, extrovert challenger Tyson Fury will be available as a Sky Box Office pay-per-view event, after both combatants confirmed this to us. A press conference featuring both men will follow later this month in London.
“I ain’t there to waste people’s hard-earned Sky Sports pay-per-view money, 20 pound a time,” Fury told Boxing News. “BoxNation had the chance to make the fight and they didn’t. I’m getting paid more money to go to Germany and that’s what it’s about for me, money. So you go where the money is.
Klitschko is delighted to return to the premium platform he last graced when outscoring David Haye in July 2011.
