The October 24 Wladimir Klitschko-Tyson Fury title match is now on hold due to a Klitschko calf injury.

The champion announced the injury this morning after his physician, Dr. Hans-Wilhelm Muller-Wohlfahrt, confirmed a “partial musculotendinous tear” of the left calf.

“Especially after the exciting press conference last Wednesday, In was looking forward to this fight very much,” said Klitschko in a statement. “I know a lot of fans have already organized their trips to support me in Dusseldorf. I am so sorry that I am not able to fight on October 24. I also apologize to my opponent, who has spent weeks preparing for the fight. I will do my very best to recover as fast as possible.”

Fury, who endured two fight cancellations from former Klitschcko rival David Haye in 2013, mocked Klitschko’s postponement on social media.


At press time, a rescheduled date is expected to be announced next week.
