DUESSELDORF, Germany — Tyson Fury has withdrawn a complaint about the canvas being too soft for Saturday’s world heavyweight title fight against Wladimir Klitschko, meaning the bout will go ahead as planned.

Fury’s agent, Asif Vali, said organizers had agreed to remove a layer of foam to make the canvas firmer.

“The fight is on,” Fury’s agent Asif Vali told The Associated Press, six hours before the bout was due to take place at a 55,000-seat soccer stadium in Duesseldorf.

Fury had earlier threatened to pull out of the fight if the canvas wasn’t changed, and he made a complaint to the British Boxing Board of Control and the fight commissioner.
