Fury v Klitschko Rematch Postponed Over Injury

Undisputed world boxing heavyweight champion Tyson Fury says his rematch with Wladimir Klitschko has been postponed.

He said the postponement is as a result of an injury he sustained during training.

The Fury versus Klitschko rematch was earlier scheduled to hold at the Manchester Arena on July 9

The British fighter, however, posted a video on Instagram to say that he had sustained a sprained ankle while training in the Lake District.

The 27-year-old said that he suffered the problem 10 days ago but after being assessed by two doctors, he had been advised to rest for six to seven weeks.

According to ESPN, there has been talk of the second showdown taking place during October, but this is yet to be confirmed by either camp.

In November, Fury caused one of the biggest surprises in recent boxing memory when he earned a points win over Klitschko in Dusseldorf.
