Tyson Fury’s title shot against Wladimir Klitschko was lacking a venue with Fury’s camp searching for home court advantage and after Chelsea pulled out, the Emirates Stadium could host the stellar matchup, the Daily Mail reports.
Fury’s promoter Frank Warren is a massive Arsenal fan and after hitting a brick wall regarding a venue in Britain, he may have just come across his dream location.
Klitschko has previously defended his belts in Germany, but after indicating that he’s prepared to fight Fury anywhere – as the Daily Mail reported – Warren has been seeking a fight on home soil for his fighter.
Arsenal transfer news
The Emirates Stadium isn’t averse to holding non-footballing events with a number of U2 concerts taking place at our beloved home over the past few years.
Ivan Gazidis and his team are always looking at different avenues to maximise our revenue and holding a significant sporting event such as this could lead to similar opportunities.
Arsene Wenger recently wrote to Arsenal fan James DeGale ahead of his world title fight against Andre Dirrell (via Sky Sports)- which he subsequently won – and Warren may point to his allegiance in order to secure the Emirates as a venue for Fury v Klitschko.
