Vladimir Klitschko has confirmed his heavyweight title rematch with champion Tyson Fury will take place on July 9 in Manchester, the Ukrainian said on Wednesday.

Fury's camp had already announced the date and venue earlier this month but Klitschko's management said a few issues still had to be sorted out.

Everything is now set and a statement said the 21,000 Manchester Arena would be the venue. The first pre-fight press conference will take place in the British city, Fury's birthplace, next Wednesday.

Fury, 27, stunned long-time champion Klitschko on points in Dusseldorf last November to win the WBA, IBF and WBO titles.

Fury then lost the IBF title for failing to fight the body’s mandatory challenger, Vyacheslav Glazkov.
