THE MUCH-ANTICIPATED rematch between Tyson Fury and Wladimir Klitschko for the world heavyweight championship has been postponed until October.

Fury, who had been due the defend his title against the former champion in Manchester on 9 July, posted a message on Instagram announcing that he sprained his ankle and is out of the bout.

The British boxer famously defeated Klitschko by unanimous decision in Dusseldorf last November to claim the title.
