Klitschko-Chisora off

IBF, IBO, WBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko has to cancel his title defense against British and Commonwealth titleholder Dereck Chisora. The bout was supposed to take place on April 30 in the SAP Arena Mannheim, Germany. The reason is the not yet fully healed injury Klitschko suffered last December. Originally the fight against Chisora was scheduled for December 11, 2010. A few days before the bout, three-time champion Klitschko suffered a torn abdominal muscle. After cancelling the fight, it was rescheduled for April 30, 2011. Since the recovery process is not yet in a stage that Klitschko can start training again, the fight has to be called off again.

Dr. Hans-Wilhelm Müller-Wohlfahrt, the doctor in charge, is of the opinion that an intensive training period in preparation for a fight in April cannot be realized. “Considering the current clinical picture, it is difficult to predict a precise time of rehabilitation. The start of a training camp at this time for a fight in April would be too much of a high risk,” explains Müller-Wohlfahrt.

Wladimir Klitschko: “I am very sorry about cancelling the fight – especially for all fans in the already sold-out SAP arena in Mannheim. I have already fought there three times, 2006 I became World Champion in this arena. However, I am optimistic that soon we’ll have an event in Mannheim.”

Filipino Tumbaga started well when he landed a big right cross which almost dropped the local fighter at the early of the opening round but after that Yodchanchai speeded his aggression, getting closer to his opponent and weakening his foe with vicious bodyshots. The show rapidly ended in round two when the Thai fighter speeded his assault which rendered the Filipino refusing to continue, appealing for low blow to the referee. This was unfruitful as the referee considered there was no foul and displayed an eight-count to the Filipino.

Update: Alvarez came back and weighed 151.4.

Saul “Canelo” Alvarez weighed in at 151.8 pounds for his 154lb WBC world title match against Matthew Hatton on Saturday. Unfortunately for Alvarez, the bout against welterweight Hatton is being being fought at a 150lb catch weight (four pounds under the division limit), so he needs to drop 1.8 pounds. Hatton weighed 149.6 pounds. The Hatton camp had previously threatened to pull out if Alvarez didn’t make the weight, however the more likely scenario is he would settle for 10% of Alvarez’ purse ($35,000) in the event Canelo can’t drop the weight. Canelo would also be fined an additional 10% of his purse by the California Commission. Click here for more photos…
