By Luke Furman

From every possible corner, groups are banding together to present offers for the promotional rights to the Wladimir Klitschko vs. Alexander Leapai heavyweight clash for the WBO/IBO/WBA/IBF titles. The fight is being targeted for March 8th. The two sides have until Friday to reach a deal or the fight will head to a purse bid.

Russian promoter Vladimir Hryunov has already expressed his interest in taking part in the purse bid. Russian billionaire David Traktovenko, owner of the Sydney FC football club, is also interested in staging the fight. And now there is talk that a group of investors are looking to secure the fight for the Venetian Casino in Macau, China.

[QUOTE=Cupo303]I'm getting a little tired of this "holding" B.S. stereotype going around. It's like a cancer spreading with this new internet age. Short attention span morons piling on with group think. Yeah, the guy holds but it hasn't been a real problem until the Alexander fight. Usually I bar...

[QUOTE=joe strong]I knew this would get interest when leapai won. a heavyweight title fight in Australia or china doesn't happen too often. I never once have thought this fight would be in Germany. I would be shocked if it went there. leapai is not European. he is a samoan aussie so that will col...
