Vernon Forrest Statement!

“The recent news about me fighting in Atlanta against Sergio Martinez was a surprise.  As you know, I am currently recovering from a rib injury that has not allowed me to fight and defend my WBC Super Welterweight Title.  At this point I have not been given clearance from my doctor to even start rehabbing the injury, much less training to fight. I have not fought since September of 2008 and it is my expectation  that the WBC would honor my request to fight a tune up fight once I’m ready which will most likely be 11 months since my last fight.  The WBC has taken this approach with many of their champions in the past, and I’m confident that they will with me as well.”
