WBC: Vitali Klitschko Will Not Return Until 2014

By Ruslan Chikov

The World Boxing Council have announced that WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko is suffering from an injury to his right hand and won't return to the ring until 2014. Klitschko (45-2, 41 KOs), 42-years-old, was ordered to fight mandatory challenger Bermane Stiverne (23-1-1, 20KOs). The purse bid was postponed several times. Vitali has been inactive since last September's TKO victory of Manuel Charr in Russia. The WBC will not make a decision on Vitali's championship status until the first quarter of 2014.

I've juste read on a german newspaper that Vitali Klitschko is out for 10 weeks. He got injured while he was training in Kiev. His right index's tendon is extended. It is also mentioned that Vitali may not fight before…

[QUOTE=hougigo;13645579]He won't get stripped either How can you wait to decide his championship status until 2014?! He hasn't fought since last year... that's clearly against your rules. [B]Why was Ward stripped then and it's been half the time for him.…
