Klitschko stated regarding the pending bout against of Fury, "I just got the news that I am obligated to satisfy my mandatories (title defences). The way it looks, Tyson Fury is going to be my next challenger. Obviously a fight with Tyson Fury is not going to be in the United States. I think this fight needs to happen in Europe. I know that he's the WBA mandatory. It's something that I have to do. Fighting Fury in Germany or in Great Britain, that's something we have to figure out. It's something we have to work out."
