Malta Independent - - SPORT -

A box­ing pro­moter says a deal is close to be­ing agreed for IBF heavy­weight cham­pion An­thony Joshua to fight Wladimir Kl­itschko.

Kl­itschko, the former IBF, WBO and WBA cham­pion, would rep­re­sent the most dif­fi­cult fight of the un­de­feated Joshua’s pro­fes­sional career.

The WBO and WBA heavy­weight belts given up by Tyson Fury could also be up for grabs in the fight, which is set to hap­pen in the north­ern English city of Manch­ester later this year.
