Last night promoters Hennessy Sports and Team Fury released a joint statement  that FURY had had to pull out of the rematch on Oct 29 due to medical reasons.  This is the second time the fight has been called off. In June Fury pulled out due to an ankle injury and now the fight is off again. Fury has not fought since winning the title last November in Germany and will all that has gone on since things are looking more and more unlikely that the return with Klitschko will ever take place. Fury was stripped of the IBF belt last December after he didn’t face the bodies manadtory challenger and now could be stripped by the WBA and WBO. Fury also has a hearing with UK Anti-Doping body in November to overcome.

STATEMENT

It is with the deepest regret that we have to announce that the World Heavyweight Championship rematch between Tyson Fury and Wladimir Klitschko, scheduled to take place on the 29th October 2016 at the Manchester Arena, will not be going ahead.

Tyson has, this week, been declared medically unfit to fight. Medical specialists have advised that the condition is too severe to allow him to participate in the rematch and that he will require treatment before going back into the ring. Tyson will now immediately undergo the treatment he needs to make a full recovery.

We and Tyson wish to express our sincerest apologies to all those concerned with the event and all the boxing fans who had been looking forward to the rematch. Tyson is understandably devastated by the development.
