Former boxing world heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko will probably have to wait only until next summer to get his rematch against new champion Tyson Fury. The venue of the rematch -- Wembley Stadium, UK.
In what has been the second massive upset in combat sports in the month of November, Britain's Fury registered a shock unanimous victory over the Ukrainian veteran Klitschko on Saturday at the Espirit Arena in Dusseldorf, Germany.
It was only in 15 November when everyone associated with combat sport were left shocked after Holly Holm notched an unbelievable knockout (KO) victory over Ronda Rousey to become the new UFC bantamweight champion at UFC 193.
Fury recorded a 115-112, 115-112, and 116-111 verdict from the judges to be declared the new WBA Super, WBO and IBF heavyweight champions of the world. He made Klitschko frustrated throught the 12-round boxing bout after making good work of his footwork.
The 39-year-old Klitschko is now looking to triggering his rematch clause, and as per information from Fury's camp, the new Wembley stadium looks set to be the venue. "Wembley Stadium would be very appealing at the right time of year, definitely," Mick Hennessy, Fury's promoter, said.
"It was close to 55,000 in Düsseldorf. It would easily do 80,000 at Wembley. But it would have to be at the end of the football season," he added to the Guardian.
Klitschko, 27, who picked his first loss in the boxing ring in nine years, has made his intentions clear that he is going all-out for the rematch. Fury, too, isn't holding back. "I'm not really interested whatever I have to fight next," Fury said in his first presser after the fight, on Monday.
"I am just focussing on what I have done. It's not sunk in yet. I'm just waiting for it to come down. I feel like I am floating about and when I come down I will make a decision on who I fight next.
"I haven't done something I didn't believe I could do. I outboxed him for 12 rounds rather than knocking him out in two and that is better."
Hennessy, meanwhile, predicted that the result of the rematch is easy to predict -- Tyson Fury with a KO win over Wladimir Klitschko!
"He [Klitschko] was busted up pretty bad and I just think there's more to come from Tyson," Hennessy said. "If Tyson could have got that right hand off clean, it would have knocked him out. So he knows that Tyson is only going to get better. Next time he fights Klitschko, I guarantee he knocks him out."
