Wladimir Klitschko injured: Fight against Dereck Chisora cancelled

The fight between IBF, WBO, IBO and „The Ring” Heavyweight Champion Wladimir Klitschko and his opponent Dereck Chisora (UK) had to be cancelled. The two heavyweights were supposed to meet at SAP Arena Mannheim, Germany, this Saturday, Dec 11.

After an initial diagnosis, Klitschko suffered a torn abdominal muscle on his left side during his afternoon training session on Wednesday. “The abdominal muscle is injured and therefore Wladimir Klitschko will not be able to fight on Saturday”, says Dr. Sven Roessing, orthopedic specialist at university hospital Mannheim, Germany. Klitschko will have to pause for about 4 - 6 weeks. It is the first time in his professional career Wladimir Klitschko had to cancel a fight due to an injury.
