Wladimir Klitschko Calls Off Heavyweight Clash After Double Operation
The heavyweight clash was billed to take place in Germany on Saturday night (10Dec11), but Klitschko, the ex-boyfriend of actress Hayden Panettiere, is still recovering from surgeries to remove a kidney stone and is too weak to fight.
Klitschko's manager is now hoping to reschedule the fight for March (12).
The champion was hospitalised on Friday (02Dec11) after suffering abdominal pain during training.
The kidney stone was removed on Saturday (03Dec11), but Klitschko returned to the hospital in Dusseldorf on Sunday (04Dec11) for a second operation.
Saturday's fight would have been Klitschko's first boxing appearance since he beat Britain's David Haye in July (11).
