Controversial boxing world champion Tyson Fury will defend his Heavyweight title against Wladimir Klitscho in July.

Fury, will aim to defend the title he took from Klitschko in front of a home crowd in Manchester on July 9th.

The fight will be a rematch of their pair’s fight in Dusseldorf last November, where Fury beat Klitschko on point to take the WBA, IBF and WBO titles.


Since his win, Fury has sparked controversy with his outlandish comments in the media but you can guarantee the whole of Britain will be behind the 27-year-old in the summer.

Klitschko, 40, will no doubt be wanting to avenge for his loss in November, especially with many assuming this could be his last fight.

But the self-confessed ‘Gypsy King’ will be wanting to further cement his place in world boxing history by beating the former champion for a second time.


The announcement of the July date has sparked a lot of talk on social media, with many claiming the July 9/10 weekend could be the greatest ever.

The Wimbledon singles finals, the British Grand Prix and the Euro 2016 final all taking place over the two days.
