Heavyweight champ Wladimir Klitschko has postponed his upcoming title defense against Kubrat Pulev, as it was revealed today by his promoter that he suffered a bicep injury during training.
Klitschko (63-3, 52 KOs) apparently torn his left bicep muscle while sparring.
“I am very disappointed the fight will not go ahead”, Wladimir Klitschko said. “So far I have been in top shape and had a great training camp. I am sorry for my fans as well as my opponent Kubrat Pulev, who has surely prepared just as intensely.”
Wladimir was previously in the ring in April, when he knocked out Alex Leapai in the fifth round.
According to his team, will miss four weeks of training, and the fight will likely be rescheduled for November in Hamburg at the O2 Arena; where the fight was to have taken place originally.
