Klitschko to face Fury on October 24
- Updated: July 6, 2015
A purse bid was scheduled to take place today for the rights to promote the heavyweight title clash between Wladimir Klitschko and Tyson Fury.
However, shortly before the bid began, the two camps struck a deal to put the fight together on October 24 in Dusseldorf, Germany.
Klitschko is coming off of a unanimous decision win over Bryant Jennings in April, while Fury stopped Christian Hammer back in February.
According to Dan Rafael of ESPN, the fight will air “on HBO in the US, RTL in Germany.”
