Team Wlad: Nothing agreed yet

Tyson Fury and Wladimir Klitschko's rematch still doesn't have an agreed location or date, the Ukrainian's management team confirmed.

Austria, where Klitschko frequently retreats for pre-fight training camps, had emerged as a contender to host the world heavyweight championship fight but nothing has been settled.

"We are still in negotiations and haven't confirmed any date or location," Nicola Pattberg of the Klitschko Management Group (KMG) exclusively told Sky Sports.

Fury took Klitschko's WBA, IBF and WBO titles with a unanimous decision victory in Germany in November, and the 39-year-old immediately vowed to invoke his right to a second fight.

However, a failure to confirm when or where the rematch will take place had cast the fight into doubt. America, Germany, England and the Middle East have all been touted as potential host locations but a deal is yet to be struck – although Fury's promoter stressed that it's a matter of time.

"It's definitely Wladimir in the rematch, 100 per cent," Mick Hennessy told Sky Sports.

"That's the fight that we want and for us, it's the only fight and the main fight in the heavyweight division."
