South African light heavyweight Thomas Oosthuizen has suffered a motorcycle accident that will take him off a Jan. 18 card featuring Jean Pascal against Lucian Bute.
Jean Pascal on Lucian Bute: “On Jan. 18, the ring will be too small for the both of us. Bute will not be able to hide. I will expose him.”
The handlers of WBO light heavyweight titleholder Sergey Kovalev say the fighter has agreed to make his fist defense against Ismayl Sillakh on the Nov. 30 Adonis Stevenson-Tony Bellew card.
