Klitschko-Povetkin judge on probation, wears electronic ankle bracelet

WBA-appointed Klitschko-Povetkin judge Ted Gimza has been given special permission by the Circuit Court of the Nineteenth Judicial Circuit, Lake County, Illinois, to leave the USA to work the WBA/IBF/WBO/IBO heavyweight championship fight on October 5 in Moscow, Russia. Gimza, who in a plea bargain pled guilty to a felony weapons charge on July 29th (Lake County Case Number: 12CF382) is serving a two-year probation which includes 24/7 electronic home monitoring, a.k.a. “ankle bracelet” for a period of 160 days which extends well past the fight date. According to Keith S. Brin, Clerk of the Circuit Court of Lake County, Gimza has been granted the right to leave the country between October 1 and October 7 for employment purposes and is released from electronic home monitoring during the above time periods. The WBA is aware of Gimza’s legal situation and both camps have signed off on him working the fight.
