Fury-Klitschko rematch set

Tyson Fury’s world heavyweight title rematch with Wladimir Klitschko has been confirmed for 29 October.

British world champion Fury, 28, claimed the WBO, WBA and IBF belts from the 40-year-old Ukrainian in November 2015, but pulled out of a July rematch with an ankle injury.

The fight is at Manchester Arena.

“I’m delighted that we can finally get the fight back on. We can now focus on giving the fans what they deserve,” said Fury’s manager and uncle Peter.

Klitschko was undefeated for 11 years and had held the belts since 2006 before losing to Fury in Dusseldorf on a unanimous points decision.
