Tyson Fury has revealed that an ankle sprain has seen his rematch with Wladimir Klitschko on July 9 postponed as a result.


The heavyweight champion broke the news on his Instagram account, and it comes just hours after a foul-mouthed rant aimed at his Ukrainian rival.

Fury claims that he sprained his ankle while out running, and has therefore been advised by doctors to rest for six to seven weeks.

Of course, Fury has form for false announcements, bizarrely claiming recently that he was knocked down in training, followed by a retraction.

The punchline never came in his latest post though, and judging by the pictures released by Team Fury, the injury seems legitimate.

There’s been no word yet on the expected rescheduling of the heavyweight showdown at the Manchester Arena, which follows the clash the two had in November of last year, where Fury handed Klitschko his first loss in eleven and a half years, claiming the  WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, IBO, The Ring and lineal heavyweight titles in the process.
