WBC heavyweight world champion Vitali Klitschko was in Mexico City to meet with WBC President Jose Sulaiman about his mandatory fight. the 42-year-old Klitschko says he hurt his right hand in training and therefore won’t be able to fight Bermaine Stiverne on the date scheduled for his mandatory. Klitschko is hoping that physiotherapy will render surgery unnecessary. The WBC will give Vitali the opportunity to make a full recovery so he can return to the ring in March or April of 2014. Klitschko, who is active politically in his native Ukraine, also stated that he plans to seek the nomination for President of that country in 2015.
