The rematch date for Tyson Fury vs Wladimir Klitschko has now been arranged. It will take place on October 20 at the Manchester Arena.

The British boxer was supposed to defend his WBA (Unified), WBO, IBO, The Ring, and lineal heavyweight titles back in July against the Ukrainian, but he had to pull out of the fight due to an ankle injury.

The Heavyweight Champion's manager and uncle Peter has said recently according to BBC Sport that he is happy the fight is back on because it will provide the fans with what they deserve once more.

He said: "I'm delighted that we can finally get the fight back on. We can now focus on giving the fans what they deserve."

When Dr. Steelhammer had heard of the decision, he was delighted as well as it would finally provide him an opportunity to correct the error that he made last November in Dusseldorf when he first lost the titles on a unanimous points decision.

"Finally the rematch is fixed. I'll remedy my mistake on 29 October at Manchester Arena. See you there," he tweeted.

The Furious One could be fighting for the last time this November against Klitschko, or if he wants to, he could have one more fight, if he is successful, and try and win the IBF title back after he was stripped of it for not putting it on the line against the required fighter.

Fellow British boxer Anthony Joshua is now the current IBF champion, so it will be interesting to see if AJ calls out Fury after his fight in November.
