Fury’s WBA Super and WBO world heavyweight titles will be on the line against Ukrainian Klitschko, who had not been defeated in 11 years prior to facing Fury in November.
So Fury has three months to hit the gym and his favourite karaoke bars in preparation…
On a side note, that second weekend of July is going to be incredible.
Women’s Wimbledon final Saturday afternoon, Fury-Klitschko on Saturday night, Conor McGregor-Nate Diaz in the early hours of Sunday morning, then the men’s Wimbledon final, and the final of Euro 2016 to cap it all off.
I’m sure we’ll find time to sleep at some point.
