Wladimir Klitschko and Tyson Fury are two heavyweight boxers that have never gotten along since the get-go, but it appears as though relations are about to hit an all-time low.

Dr Steelhammer is far from happy with the Fury camp's conduct in the run-up to their pending rematch and he has indicated that he is willing to take them to court.

The 40-year-old Ukrainian lost the WBA Super, WBO and IBF titles to the undefeated Fury in November last year. He postponed talk of retirement by exercising a contractual rematch clause hoping to wash away the memories of what was, aesthetically speaking, an awful heavyweight world title bout.

The return match was initially scheduled for Manchester on July 9, but was called off due to an ankle injury to the champion. Fury shared graphic images of his damaged ankle on social media which substantiated his claims, but a new date of October 29 was provisionally pencilled in nonetheless.

However, Klitschko gave us all an update on social media today when he claimed that if the Fury camp insists on trying to renegotiate the contract, he will take legal action.

"Dear fans. I just want to keep you updated on the status quo of my rematch against Fury. Unfortunately, Team Fury is trying to change the terms of an already-signed contract multiple times. To protect my own rights and to see the rematch, I'm forced to go to court."

Earlier this week, the gregarious Fury stated he had a three-fight wish-list that included the Klitschko rematch as well as unification clashes with IBF holder Anthony Joshua and WBC king Deontay Wilder.

On that premise, it would appear as though he still has plans to fight the long-time heavyweight stalwart, but is he just trying to wrangle a bit of extra cash?
