Tyson Fury rematch with Wladimir Klitschko rescheduled for 29 October

Tyson Fury has announced his rematch with Wladimir Klitschko has been rescheduled for 29 October in Manchester.

The 27-year-old was due to fight Klitschko this weekend but was forced to withdraw after sustaining an ankle injury in training.

On Thursday, Fury wrote on Twitter: “16 weeks Saturday till I blast Klitschko spark out, #&still!!!! Can’t wait #manchesteroctober29 #letshaveit”.

Last month, the WBA Super, WBO and IBO heavyweight champion said he was “baffled” by reports that he had failed a drug test for the banned substance nandrolone and denied any allegation of doping.
