World Championship Bout Tyson Fury vs Wladimir Klitschko Cancelled

The world championship bout between Tyson Fury and Wladimir Klitschko is cancelled, once again because of Fury. The Klitschko Management Group (KMG) was informed by Fury’s promoter that Fury cannot box for several months due to medical reasons. Thus, the fight night planned for October 29, 2016 in Manchester unfortunately must be cancelled.
Wladimir Klitschko received this message at his training camp. “I am totally disappointed that Fury cancelled the fight for a second time. I am in top shape and I would have loved to retrieve my world championship belts in Manchester. Since I became a professional boxer in 1996, I never had such a long break.“
Bernd Boente, CEO of KMG: "The situation really is depressing for Wladimir. Since Fury cannot box for a long time, the world boxing organizations will react for sure. We are waiting for their prompt decision.“
Note to all media representatives: We will info<a name="_GoBack"></a>rm you about the development of this case.
