World heavyweight champion Tyson Fury's rematch with Wladimir Klitschko has been postponed for a second time after the British fighter was declared "medically unfit".

The Englishman agreed to face Klitschko again, which meant he was stripped of the IBF title for failing to face its mandatory challenger.

The pair are due to meet in Manchester on October 29, with Fury defending the WBA and WBO heavyweight belts he took off Klitschko last November.

This is the second time that the rematch has been postponed.

Fury was last week due to attend a press conference with Klitschko, but failed to show up, with his manager citing vehicle problems.

According to a report by the Associated Press, Fury's management team says he has been "declared medically unfit to fight".

"The condition is too severe to allow him to participate", said promoters. Until then, we ask that Tyson and his family be given the privacy and the space he needs to recover during this hard time'.

Do they mandate a bout with Klitschko vs. Luis Ortiz or Joseph Parker (the WBA's and WBO's number one contenders, respectively) for the interim title or just wait on Fury and hope that he finally gets his head (and body) back into the game? Tyson is understandably devastated by the development.

So far the exact details of Fury's injury are not known.

As Anderson reported, Fury has also been the subject of a UK Anti-Doping investigation after he allegedly failed a drug test.

Last month, he was charged by the United Kingdom anti-doping body for an alleged offence, with the hearing due to take place in November.

Fury was provisionally suspended, but that ban has since been lifted.
