Liakhovich ready to return!

With his promotional ties to Don King Productions severed and his shoulder injury now fully healed, former WBO Champion Sergei Liakhovich says he is ready to return to heavyweight glory in 2009. “I want to make a statement in the heavyweight division this year and have some great fights. I’m a free man and I’m 100% healthy. I did my shoulder rehab with one of the best in the States and now everything is great,” asserts the eager Belarusian slugger. Liakhovich hadn’t had much luck on his side since winning the WBO title against Lamon Brewster in impressive fashion in 2006. First he suffered a late stoppage against Shannon Briggs at 2:59 of the twelfth and final round to lose his title. Then in a WBA title eliminator in February of last year he suffered a rotator cuff injury against Nikolay Valuev and was shut out over twelve rounds. The 32-year-old “White Wolf” has a record of 23-3 with 14 KOs.
