Fury's Klitschko rematch gets October date

07 September 2016, 16:08

London - World heavyweight champion Tyson Fury's rematch with Wladimir Klitschko will take place in Manchester on October 29.

Fury claimed a shock win over Ukrainian Klitschko to take the WBA, WBO and IBF belts in Dusseldorf last November.

The 28-year-old British fighter agreed to face Klitschko again, which meant he was stripped of the IBF title for failing to face its mandatory challenger.

A July date for the return bout was postponed after Fury suffered an ankle injury and Klitschko recently revealed he intended to go to court over the negotiations of a rematch with the controversial Fury.

However, following Wednesday's announcement of the rematch, Klitschko wrote on Twitter: "Finally the rematch is fixed. I'll remedy my mistake on Oct. 29 at Manchester Arena. See you there! #NowMoreThanEver."

Shortly after Fury postponed the original date, reports emerged that he had been the subject of a doping investigation last year.

Fury denied the allegations but in August UK Anti-Doping revealed he had been provisionally suspended in June over the presence of a prohibited substance.

The ban had been lifted pending an independent hearing and Fury, repeatedly in trouble for a series of controversial interviews since beating Klitschko, has been back in training since August.
