Zeljko Mavrovic Injured, Postpones His Ring Return
By Luke Furman
Heavyweight Zeljko Mavrovic (27-1, 22 KOs) has postponed a planned return on April 27 in Hamburg, Germany. Mavrovic, 43-years-old, was going to fight for the first time since suffering his only loss, a twelve round decision to then champion Lennox Lewis in 1998. Mavrovic battled health issues not long after the match with Lewis and retired from the sport. He was training in Spain for an unexpected return, but suffered broken ribs during a sparring session. He was reportedly going to face Enad Licina (22-4, 12 KOs) in two weeks.
