Liakhovich Withdraws From April 9 Fight

Former World Heavyweight Champion Sergei Liakhovich has been forced to withdraw from his planned fight with Johnnie White on the undercard of Tomasz Adamek vs. Kevin McBride on Saturday, April 9th at Newark's Prudential Center Arena, Kathy Duva of Main Events announced today.
 
"Unfortunately, Sergei reported that he suffered a minor rib injury in training, yesterday, and his doctor recommended that he wait until at least mid-April before he engages in any contact," she explained.  "We had been looking forward to presenting Sergei for the first time in Newark and we are so sorry that his first appearance with Main Events will have to wait,  but what is most important is that Sergei recover fully from his injury."
 
Main Events is searching for an alternate date for Liakhovich and plans to make an announcement as soon as it is arranged.

I respect the fact that Sergy pulled out from this fight but I don't like the way they went about it...

[QUOTE=Matisyahu;10315289]I didn't get the impression that he even knew where he was. Anyway he has done nothing to deserve a title shot but I guess this is a stay-busy.[/QUOTE] It's kinda like the Margarito fight for Pacquiao. I think you…

[QUOTE=Mr. Invincible;10315228]Did you even watch that fight? It was great. The last couple rounds were awesome. Unfortunate how he lost his title tho in the last seconds when he should have been allowed time to get back in the ring.[/QUOTE]…

[QUOTE=KESSLER;10315117]Yeah. Sergei is all balls and heart. That guy is never in a boring fight.[/QUOTE] The White Wolf would give Solis a beating. I thought if Helenius beats Peter he might get the nod, but Vitali vs the White Wolf…

[QUOTE=BostonGuy;10315124]Shannon Briggs?.....[/QUOTE] Mostly Briggs's fault. And the ending, though it wasn't good for Sergei, wasn't too boring!
