Tyson Fury has claimed that his heavyweight title fight against Wladimir Klitschko will been postponed.

The fight was scheduled to take place at the Manchester Arena on July 9 but, according to the WBA and WBO champion, will be moved to a later date.

Fury, who revealed the news in a video on Instagram, revealed that he had recently sustained an akle injury while training.

“About ten days ago, I was running up in the Lake District and I went over on my ankle, sprained my ankle.

“I’ve been the hospital, had x-rays and MRA [MRI] scans and all that stuff. They said it’s not broken but it’s badly spained – keep off it for six or seven weeks.

“I had a second opinion and got the advice was the same. So the fight will be being postponed.”

Fury apologised to his supporters who had booked tickets and hotels for the event before promising that it would happen sooner or later.

The Wythenshawe-born fighter defeated Klitschko in Dusseldorf last November to bring the Ukrainian’s long-standing reign as heavyweight world champion to an end.

  • Lot of people hate the ads and stuff from FB and fear its impending introduction to VR, got to remember why FB is into ads is because as a website that&1quo;s the only legit source of revenue.nThe point of Facebook&1quo;s acquisitio1 lately have been to DIVERSIFY their revenue streams. For example Whatsapp built its customer base from the fact it has no ads, and it won&1quo;t change. Its revenue comes from $1 a year from 500 million use1 and counting.nSomething like Oculus Rift would have much more different source from hardware selling, game lice1ing, some kind of App Store and other possible partne1hips (ie big partne1hip deal with NBA to bring courtside 180 streaming from a live game), ads isn&1quo;t the be all and end all…
