Vitali Gets Medical Check, Left Shoulder Injury Confirmed

By Inna Lagun, allboxing.ru

Munich, Germany - On Sunday morning, WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko visited a hospital in Munich, where Dr. Bernd Kabelka confirmed that a ligament tear in the left shoulder was suffered during Saturday's night twelve round decision win over British boxer Dereck Chisora.

No surgery will be needed, said Kabelka. Klitschko admits that he "suddenly lost strength in the left hand" and was forced to use his right for most of the contest. The injury is believed to have occured in the second or third round. Klitschko's trainer, Fritz Zdunek, believes the shoulder damage is a recurrence of the same injury Vitali suffered in the fight with Chris Byrd in 2000. The injury forced Vitali to quit the fight, which gave Byrd a TKO victory in nine.

"In the coming days further tests will be carried be carried out. Today's data eliminates the need for surgery," said Kabelka.
