World heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko must postpone his IBF title bout with Kubrat Pulev. During his sparring he suffered a torn muscle fibre in his left biceps. The fight is likely to be held before the end of the year in Hamburg.
Wladimir will have to miss four weeks of training. “I am very disappointed the fight will not go ahead”, he 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.”
