HAND INJURY RULES KLITSCHKO OUT OF STIVERNE BOUT

0

BERLIN, Germany: World heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko has been forced to withdraw from his mandatory defence against Canada’s Bermane Stiverne after injuring his right hand in training. The 42-year-old Klitschko has held the WBC heavyweight belt since October 2008 but the injury means he is now unlikely to box in 2013. Klitschko, who has 41 knock-outs from 45 wins in 47 bouts, last fought in September 2012 when he enjoyed a fourth-round technical knock-out of Germany’s Manuel Charr in Moscow.
