CONTROVERSIAL British world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury claimed Thursday his postponed rematch against Wladimir Klitschko, who he sensationally beat last November, will take place on October 29. The 27-year-old — who has regularly sparked a furore over his comments on women, paedophiles and homosexuality — tweeted that his WBA, WBO and IBO belts, which previously belonged to Klitschko, will be on the line when he faces up to the veteran Ukrainian in Manchester. Fury had originally been due to defend his titles — he relinquished the IBF belt when he declined to fight the mandatory challenger Vyacheslav Glazkov — this month, but an ankle injury he suffered while out running in June ruled him out. Only two days after he made that announcement, the Sunday Mirror alleged he had failed a drugs test last year — he strenuously denied it.
