Former WBA cruiserweight world champion Firat Arslan (29-4-1, 18 KOs) was injured in a bike accident during his training camp for his comeback fight. Arslan was training with his racing bike in the Austrian alps near Kössen when a tractor pulled out onto the main road. He managed to escape a frontal crash but flipped over his bike and fell onto the asphalt, suffering several bruises to his body. Luckily he was wearing a helmet. Arslan was taken to hospital for further examination and released. The injuries will not affect the boxing career of Arslan, but the former cruiserweight champion will take some time to recover and then return to training as soon as possible.
