LANCASTER’S heavyweight sensation Tyson Fury will defend his Commonwealth title in Manchester next month.

The unbeaten giant will take on Canadian Neven Pajkic, 34, at EventCity, Trafford Park, on November 12.

Pajkic, like Fury, has a perfect record of 16 wins in 16 professional fights.

Fury stopped American Nicolai Firtha in the fifth round of his previous outing in Belfast last month having defeated Dereck Chisora in July to lift both the Commonwealth and British belts.

Fury recently told The Visitor he wanted to fight for the World Heavyweight Title at Morecambe FC’s Globe Arena on Westgate.

The fight will be live on Channel 5.
