Tyson Fury Aims For a Showcase Win in Manchester

London - Tyson Fury, the current unbeaten British and Commonwealth heavyweight champion is thrilled to be fighting in his native home town of Manchester on November 12 for the first time in his glittering career.

“It will be a night of firsts” said the Man United fan “I was born and raised in Manchester and now to finally be given the opportunity to defend my Commonwealth title in this great city is very special to me.

“It will be like making my debut all over again as it will be my first time since turning pro that I’m fighting in Manchester.

“I’m now the number one heavyweight in the UK and I’m going up against the Canadian Champion who has had a lot to say about me over the last year, so this fight is personal and I’m going to put on a real show and show just how world class I am.”

Tyson Fury vs. Canadian Neven Pajkic, proudly presented by Hennessy Sports, will be broadcast live on Channel 5.

To add to the special night, EventCity will also be making their debut by holding their first ever professional boxing event.

“EventCity couldn’t be better located right next to the excellent Trafford Centre, it’s going to be so easy for my fans to get there to support me, parking isn’t a issue, they can do their bits and pieces and have something to eat and drink and then come and watch some top class boxing.

“It would be good to fight at EventCity on a regular basis as it has the potential to seat up to 10,000 people” added Tyson

Also scheduled to fight on the Nov. 12 card in Manchester is the very talented and exciting, undefeated super bantamweight prospect Kid Galahad of Sheffield.

Joining Tyson and Kid will be former British Light Welterweight champion Lenny Daws of Morden, English Welterweight Champion Adnan Amar (Nottingham) who will be defending his title against James Flynn (Coventry), Phill Fury (Lancaster), Jack Perry (Derby), Chris Truman (Birmingham) and undefeated Light Heavyweight prospect Lionell Thompson from Buffalo, USA who will be making his UK debut. All fights and fighters are subject to change.
