Klitschko, Fury rematch could be in June

The rematch between Wladimir Klitschko and WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO heavyweight champion Tyson Fury could be reportedly taking place at the Manchester Arena in June.

Former champion Klitschko has confirmed he will be activating the rematch clause in his contract when he lost his titles to Fury in Dusseldorf in November.

According to the Manchester Evening News the frontrunner as a venue for the bout is the Manchester Arena with a pencilled in date of June 4.

With the venue in Manchester being smaller than Old Trafford and Wembley it increases the prospect of being a sell-out venue which is ideal from a financial perspective.

Klitschko has fought most of his fights in Germany at sold-out venues.
