Chris John Injured

By Jeff Pamungkas

During his preparation for his title defense against #15 challenger Fernando David Saucedo, WBA super champion Chris John suffered a shoulder injury during a sparring session earlier of this week. John vs. Sausedo, originally on June 22 in Bali Island, is postponed until the end of July, but the date is not yet confirmed. According to this writer’s source, John sparred with lightweight sparmate William Kickett, but his arm was twisted in Kickett’s armpit like in the Tyson-Botha fight, plus the champion was accidentally pushed until he fell down on the canvas with his arm sill twisted in Kickett’s armpit, making the injury even worse. John is now reportedly receiving medical treatment in Jakarta.
