The rematch between Tyson Fury and Wladimir Klitschko will take place 11 months after the original fight.
A rematch was originally scheduled for July 9th but Fury pulled out due to an ankle injury. It will now take place at the Manchester Arena on October 29th.

Fury defeated Klitschko in Dusseldorf in November of last year. On that night, the British fighter claimed the IBF, WBA and WBO heavyweight titles.
He was later forced to relinquish the IBF title as he refused to face mandatory challenger Charles Martin. Fury instead prioritised a much more lucrative rematch against Klitschko as his next fight. The IBF belt has since been won by Fury's fellow Brit Anthony Joshua.
The fight will be broadcast on BoxNation.
