Reports online suggest Tyson Fury and Wladimir Klitschko will finally meet for their refixed rematch in two months time.

Former Irish champion Fury deposed the lineal champion on November 28th of last year in Duesseldorf to claim the WBA, WBO and IBF heavyweight World titles.

The Ukrainian looked set to retire after the one sided points loss, but set his sights on revenge and enforced his rematch clause.

The return was set for Manchester and July 9th, but the rematch had to be postponed after Fury suffered an ankle injury.

A number of proposed new dates and venues have been put forward since, with Team Klitschko denying that anything has been set in stone. However, according to Team Fury, October 29th and the Manchester Arena will play host to the massive heavyweight clash as they originally stated.
