TYSON FURY’S WBA, WBO and IBF world title fight with Wladimir Klitschko is off as the heavyweight champion has pulled out due to injury.

The pair were due to meet in Dusseldorf on 24 October and Fury showed up at a press conference dressed as Batman earlier this week. However, Klitschko has suffered a calf injury meaning it will now take place at a later date.

27-year-old Fury tweeted that he had predicted the Ukrainian would postpone the bout, before apologising to fans who had book flights and accommodation for the event.
