06.11.05 - For the fourth (!) time this year, Vitali Klitschko has been forced to pull out of his fight with Hasim Rahman. This time, a knee injury to Klitschko has forced the postponement of his anticipated World Boxing Council heavyweight title showdown against Rahman on November 12, promoter Bob Arum said on Sunday.. Klitschko injured his knee in training on Thursday.
Vitali thought he might be able to fight with a brace on his knee, but found that it hindered his movement too much. A statement from Top Rank promotions said a new date for the Klitschko-Rahman fight will be announced soon.
