Klitschko-Mormeck postponed

Earlier today, it was announced that Wladimir Klitschko would have to withdraw from his Dec. title defense against Jean-Marc Mormeck, after abdominal troubles briefly hospitalized the RING champion.

However, Klitschko’s representative Klaus-Peter Dittrich informed this morning that a rescheduled date of March 3 is being eyed.

As previously reported, the proposed date for the Vitali Klitschko-David Haye bout is also March 3, which suggests that a Klitschko double header is in the works.

Allegedly, the rescheduled date is simply hinging on approval by the IBF, before it can be confirmed.
