The Fury-Klitschko rematch, on October 29 in Manchester

The rematch between the new heavyweight champion, Britain’s Tyson Fury, and Ukraine’s Wladimir Klitschko will take place in Manchester on October 29, both boxers announced on Wednesday.

Fury defeated Klitschko last November in Dusseldorf (Germany) to take the belts of the World Boxing Association (WBA), the World Organization (WBO) and the International Federation (IBF).

A July date for the rematch was pushed back after Fury suffered an ankle injury.

“Finally, the rematch has been set. I will correct my mistake on October 29 at Manchester Arena. See you there! #NowMoreThanEver (Now more than ever) “, said the Ukrainian on Twitter.

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