Tyson Fury confirms date for Wladimir Klitschko rematch

World heavyweight champion Tyson Fury says that his rematch with Wladimir Klitschko will now take place in October.

Tyson Fury has taken to social media to confirm that his rematch with Wladimir Klitschko will now take place on October 29.

The second showdown between the two had been scheduled for July 9 but Fury was forced to withdraw from the bout at the Manchester Arena with a sprained ankle.

It was suggested that Fury could require six to seven weeks to recover from the injury but the world heavyweight champion has used Twitter to reveal the new date.

In November, Fury shocked the sporting world by beating long-time title holder Klitschko on points in Dusseldorf.
