Johannesburg, Mar 14 (ANI): Former heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko’s management has confirmed that they are in negotiations with current champion Tyson Fury to hold a rematch in Austria which is likely to take place on June 4.

The Ukrainian boxer saw his nine-year reign as world champion come to an end after suffering a unanimous points defeat against Fury, who claimed the WBA, IBF, IBO and WBO heavyweight titles in Dusseldorf last November, Sport24 reported.

However, Klitschko had announced that he would invoke his contractual option of a rematch against Fury in a bid to avenge the shocking loss. (ANI)
