LONDON -- World heavyweight champion Tyson Fury says his rematch with Wladimir Klitschko has been postponed after the British fighter hurt his ankle in training.
Fury didn't give a new date for the fight, which was scheduled to take place on July 9 in Manchester.
Speaking Friday in a video posted on his Instagram account, Fury says he sprained his ankle 10 days ago while running, and that doctors said to keep off it for six-to-seven weeks.
