Hennessy Promotions and Boxnation TV have confirmed that Tyson Fury’s heavyweight World title rematch with Wladimir Klitschko will take place next month on October 29th at the Manchester Arena.

The former Irish champion will aim to defend his WBA and WBO belts won from Klitsschko in Duesseldorf last November, as well as the Lineal crown. The IBF belt has since been stripped from the Gypsy King due to the rematch clause, and has subsequently been picked up by Anthony Joshua,

Fury was initially scheduled to put his World titles on the line against the the man he dethroned on July 9th, but a severely sprained ankle to the champion forced that date to be scrapped.

Fears the fight might fall through then emerged when reports alleged that a doping test taken by Fury suggested nandrolone use. However, a second test came back negative and the UKAD lifted a temporary ban on the fighter.  

Klitschko then threatened legal action, claiming Team Fury were trying make amendments to the initial contract again forcing people to question when, or indeed if, the massive rematch would take place.

However, Frank Warren, who looks set to come to Belfast with Boxnation for a big show in November, has confirmed that the show will ahead as planned at the already heavily rumoured date and venue.
