Tyson Fury’s world title clash with Wladimir Klitschko has been rescheduled for November 28.

The original October 24 date had to be scrapped after the Ukrainian picked up a calf injury in training.

But Morecambe giant Fury will now only have to wait a further four weeks for his shot at the IBF, IBO, WBA and WBO titles at the Esprit Arena in Dusseldorf, Germany.

Klitschko said: “My injury will heal quickly enough for me to enter the ring on November 28.

“I will promptly continue my training camp preparations and, of course, I am very happy to still be fighting this year, especially for my fans who have already bought their tickets.”

Tickets bought for the original date remain valid for November 28.
