Wladimir Klitschko vs Tyson Fury II Rematch has been finally rescheduled and the fight will take place in England at the Manchester Arena on Saturday, 29th October 2016. The rematch was first scheduled for July date but injury to Fury forced authorities to move the date in late 2016.
The first official announcement of the mega rematch fight between Tyson Fury and Wladimir Klitschko is imminent and as the reports in british media suggest a formal press conference will take place on Friday, 08 April with official confirmation of the fight/venue and dates. It is almost certain that the rematch will take place in London, England at Wembley Arena or O2 Arena and the fight date is likely to be Saturday, 16th July 2016. We will have more updates at midday Friday.

|Venue||Manchester Arena, Manchester|

Tyson Fury has couple of other massive fights on the horizon as well with the likes of Deontay Wilder, David Haye and even Anthony Joshua’s name been mentioned since his victory over Klitschko. The rematch with Ukrainian will surely make a lot of sense both in terms of money and worldwide audience which will generate massive attraction although the first fight was anything but exciting.
