Fury and Klitschko will meet again
“They don't have a lot of privilege in life a lot of other kids have to start with. But they're just as smart, just as strong, character's good, they just need reinforcement,” said boxing coach Bud Schardein.

The uncle and trainer of world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury says a rematch against Wladimir Klitschko will take place in Manchester on July 9.

Peter Fury posted details of the rematch on his Twitter account, saying an official announcement would be made later Friday.

Fury's promoter has yet to make an announcement.

Fury beat Klitschko in a unanimous decision in November to take the WBA, IBF and WBO belts and end the Ukrainian's nine-year reign as champion.

A rematch clause was inserted into the deal for the first fight, but the two camps have been struggling to come up with a date and location for a second fight.

Fury has since been stripped of the IBF belt for failing to make a mandatory defense.

Fury lives near Manchester.
