Sky Sports Box Office will show live coverage of Tyson Fury’s career defining Heavyweight World title clash with Wladimir Klitschko as part of a night of live world championship boxing including IBF world welterweight champion Kell Brook.
On the 24th of October there will be over six hours of live boxing on Sky Sports Box Office beginning at Sheffield’s Motorpoint Arena where Kell Brook tops the bill, making the third defence of his IBF welterweight world title against tough Argentinian Diego Chaves. The ESPRIT arena in Dusseldorf is then the setting for the biggest night in British heavyweight boxing since David Haye fought Wladimir Klitschko in Hamburg in 2011. Fury is undefeated following 24 fights and eighteen of his victories have come by way of a knockout.
“It’s fantastic that Sky is our TV partner for this great fight. I promise everyone an exciting evening and I hope that Tyson Fury is also going to walk his big talk. I will be ready when the 24th October arrives, hopefully Tyson will be too”. Wladimir Klitschko
In Fury’s way is the formidable Wladimir Klitschko who alongside his brother Vitali has ruled the heavyweight division since he won his first world heavyweight title against Chris Byrd in 2000. Klitschko holds the WBA, WBO, IBF, and IBO belts and has remained unbeaten for eleven years accumulating 64 victories and only three losses.
“This is my destiny. I vow to the British public I will end the Klitschko era and become the new heavyweight champion of the world. All of Europe wants to see me beat him. For far too long Wladimir and his brother have spoiled boxing with their boring jab-and-grab style. I am the new blood in the heavyweight division and on 24 October the world will see me send him packing out of the heavyweight division for good.” – Tyson Fury
Preview and analysis of the heavyweight contest of the year will be provided by Adam Smith, and former world champions Johnny Nelson, Carl Froch and Jim Watt, as well as a range of boxing experts.
