An agreement is in place for the rematch between Tyson Fury and Wladimir Klitschko for the WBA and WBO heavyweight titles to take place in Manchester on July 9, according to the British fighter’s trainer and uncle Peter Fury.

Fury senior tweeted that the long-awaited rematch would take place in Manchester.

“(On) 9th July Tyson Fury vs Klitschko is coming to Manchester Uk,” he wrote on Twitter.

A rematch between the two has been under negotiation since Morecambe ace Fury unexpectedly outpointed Klitschko in Dusseldorf in November to win the WBA, WBO and IBF titles and become the first to defeat him in 11 years.

Klitschko activated the rematch clause, which ultimately led to Fury being stripped of the IBF title through his inability to defend it against mandatory challenger Vyacheslav Glazkov.
