Likely Headed To The Mandalay Bay!
Just minutes ago, reliable sources informed Boxingtalk.com that WBC heavyweight champ Vitali Klitschko will not defend his title at Madison Square Garden. After receiving this breaking news, BT contacted Klitschko adviser Shelly Finkel, who confirmed to us that the Garden was indeed out of the running to host the fight. Although Finkel chose not to comment on it, our sources have also indicated that the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, Nevada is now the frontrunner to land the fight. Boxingtalk will continue to keep you updated. So much for 99% certain as other websites have erroneously reported today. REMEMBER WHERE YOU HEARD IT FIRST! (3:40 PM ET)
