The fight is at Manchester Arena.

“I’m delighted that we can finally get the fight back on. We can now focus on giving the fans what they deserve,” said Fury’s manager and uncle Peter.

Klitschko was undefeated for 11 years and had held the belts since 2006 before losing to the Brit in Dusseldorf on a unanimous points decision.

He tweeted: “Finally the rematch is fixed. I’ll remedy my mistake on 29 October at Manchester Arena. See you there.”

Manchester fighter Fury is unbeaten in 25 professional bouts, with 18 knock-outs, while Klitschko is 64-4, with 54 knock-outs.

The undefeated heavyweight champion had originally held three of the world belts, but his IBF title was stripped from him soon after he won it when he failed to face his mandatory challenger.

British heavyweight Anthony Joshua is the current holder.
