Duco Events has announced the possibility of Joseph Parker defending his heavyweight title against Hughie Fury in Singapore.
Duco Events who promotes the titlist , won the purse bid worth £3, 000, 011 meaning they are responsible for organising the location – but have now revealed it may not be in their home country of New Zealand.
“We’ve had an enquiry out of Singapore about taking it to a casino,” Duco director David Higgins said. “In Manchester, Fury’s hometown, the fans buy tickets big.
“The fight won’t necessarily be in New Zealand. When you prepare a purse bid, you have to put a proposed date and location. But now our job is see if we can make it stack up here.
“But we would like to hold it here. So our job over the coming two weeks is to see if we can make it work.
“Winning the purse bid you hold all the cards, losing the purse bid you lose all the cards, so the stakes were very high.”
