Tyson Fury's rematch with Wladimir Klitschko appears to be off for a second time this year, according to the latest reports.

Fury was supposed to defend his title in July but was forced to withdraw because of an injury sustained during his training camp. Reports indicate that it is injury once again which rules Fury out of the bout.

The fight, scheduled to be in Manchester on October 29, may be scuppered but his camp have failed to make any comment.

The Mirror report that Fury's team contacted the Klitschko camp to inform them of the situation toady.

No new date has been put forward and Fury could be stripped of his titles as a result of this latest postponement. Fury is currently subject of a UK Anti-Doping investigation after failing a drugs test.

Fury won the WBA and WBO titles last year against Klitschko and was stripped of his IBF title for failing to take on a mandatory challenger.
