WLADIMIR KLITSCHKO IS OUT OF HIS DECEMBER 10TH FIGHT DUE TO AN INJURY

 Manchester, UK (October 24th, 2016)– Anthony Joshua and Wladimir Klitschko or the possible fight with Lucas Browne has been delayed because of a calf injury.   This is the second time Klitschko has been injured this year. The last time he had to pull out of a rematch with Tyson Fury .

“Wladimir suffered a strained muscle in the calf. It was nothing bad, but he needs to briefly pause [training] for a few days. If we had already finished the fight contract, then he could have boxed in December,” Boente said.

“It is now better that Wladimir properly recovers. He has already prepared himself twice in vain to fight Tyson Fury.”
The fight was already hanging in the balance with the World Boxing Association torn on whether to stake their vacant belt on a bout between IBF champion Joshua and Klitschko, or instead sanction a fight between Klitschko and Australia’s Lucas Browne.

However Anthony Joshua still plans to fight on December 10th in Manchester. A fight with David Price is a possibility.

Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn told Sportsmail: ‘We have been negotiating with Wladimir and his team over the past week while the WBA have been making their decision. Because of Wladimir’s injury, which we were told about at the weekend, and the fact the fight date is only six weeks away we have had to have a re-think.

‘After speaking with Wladimir’s manager, Bernd Boente, we will now look at making the fight next March or April.

‘AJ will fight on December 10 as planned and we will now work on picking an opponent.’

Besides David Price,  Eric Molina, Bryant Jennings, Alexander Ustinov and Kubrat Pulev are also some of the fighters mentioned to fight Joshua on December 10th .
