Wladimir Klitschko is set to be ringside in Manchester on December 10 to watch Anthony Joshua defend his IBF world heavyweight title against Eric Molina.

The plan is for the former long-reigning champion to fight Joshua – should he beat Molina – for the IBF title and the vacant WBA title next year.

Klitschko will not fight between now and then but is expected to be ringside at the Manchester Arena in order to be on hand should Joshua beat Molina as he is expected to do.
