Tyson Fury's rematch against Wladimir Kiltschko has been confirmed to take place in Manchester on July 9th.

The former Irish Heavyweight Champion defeated Klitschko in Dusseldorf last November in what one of the sporting shocks of 2015. Fury's win handed him the WBA, IBF, WBO, IBO, The Ring and lineal heavyweight titles.

Since November's win, Fury has lost his IBF title which was won by Charles Martin in January. The American fights Anthony Joshua for the belt in London on Saturday night.

Fury's uncle and coach Peter was the first to break the news of the fight on Friday morning.

Fury remains unbeaten as a professional boxer. Klitschko was unbeaten in 22 fights before the loss to the English fighter.

July 9th will be a memorable night for fight fans in Britain and Ireland. Conor McGregor's rematch with Nate Diaz will take place in Las Vegas hours after the Fury-Klitschko fight in Manchester.
