Klitschko: Fury changing rematch terms, I’m forced to go to court!

Phil Jay 17/08/2016

A rematch between Tyson Fury and Wladimir Klitschko is in doubt following a video post by the former champion outlining an impending court battle.

According to Klitschko, current world ruler Fury and his team are not playing ball when it comes to contracted terms for the October 29 return and have subsequently forced him to take legal action.

The pair agreed to an immediate second fight should Fury win the original bout, which he did in November, although the Briton has since stalled on following through due to injury and a drug test failure with the UK Anti-Doping Agency.

Fury had been given an initial suspension reprieve in order to face Klitschko again in Manchester but is seemingly moving the goalposts despite everything been signed and sealed for the contest.

Klitschko is due to fight in the UK for the first time in a decade and a half in two months’ time, provided the newly announced problems are solved before the title bout.
