Fury: First Johnson, then a Klitschko?

A showdown with WBA/IBF/WBO/IBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko or WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko could be on the line when unbeaten heavyweight contender Tyson Fury takes on Kevin Johnson on Saturday night at the Odyssey Arena in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Fury’s promoter Mick Hennessy told the Daily Mirror that talks have already opened with the Klitschko camp. “We were waiting for the Vitali situation to be resolved, with the elections, and he’s going to make a decision about carrying on in December. There’s also the option to do a fight with Wladimir and it depends on what Vitali is going to do….the fight with Wladimir will be a stadium fight and we would be looking to do it in May, June or July. Germany would be the favorite place for it to happen, but I’ve spoken to them about Old Trafford or Croke Park. They are ­businessmen and we know that it would sell out. They would prefer to work with us rather than any other candidates.”
