Hernandez Injury Pushes Back Afolabi Bout To 2015

IBF cruiserweight champion Yoan Pablo Hernandez has suffered an injury to his elbow and withdrew from the upcoming mandatory title defense against Ola Afolabi, scheduled for December 6 in Oldenburg, Germany. The card will still go forward with WBA light heavyweight champion Juergen Braehmer defending his title against Polish contender Pawel Glazewski. Sauerland Event is looking to push back Hernandez-Afolabi to the first quarter of 2015.

"After sparring on Thursday I had minor complaints. But when it got worse on Friday and I couldn’t stretch my right arm properly, I went to the doctor immediately,” stated Hernandez.

i was edging ofalabi in this, he could actualy outjab hernandez and out smother him aswell, although would he get a decision in germany, he'd have to win clearly.
