The rematch between Tyson Fury and Wladimir Klitschko will happen -- but when it'll happen is an entirely different matter. Fury admits to WBN that there is still no date solidified and that he hasn't even begun any serious preparations for the bout.

"I've not heard anything I don't know anything. I've got not dates, nothing," Fury told World Boxing News.

"It will probably be the summer time because I haven't really done any training yet. It's not going to be anytime soon, I don't think."

It's being said that the complete terms for the second meeting have yet to be fully agreed to, so Fury is basically just enjoying his time with his family and fulfilling the usual media obligations as the new heavyweight champion of the world.

In the meanwhile, Klitschko is just getting older, set to turn 40-years-old this March. One would think that since father time is undefeated, he may be better suited to get this fight underway sooner than later.
