London (AFP)

Britain's controversial world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury's title rematch with Ukrainian Wladimir Klitschko has been called off for a second time as the titleholder is "medically unfit to fight" his camp said.

The 28-year-old champion -- who sensationally took the title off long-time holder Klitschko last year -- had already postponed the fight once this year because of an ankle injury.

"It is with the deepest regret that we have to announce that the world heavyweight championship rematch between Tyson Fury and Wladimir Klitschko, scheduled to take place on the 29th October 2016 at the Manchester Arena, will not be going ahead," a statement read.

"Tyson has, this week, been declared medically unfit to fight."
