Wladimir Klitschko suffers kidney colic: Jean-Marc Mormeck bout postponed till March

The scheduled fight for Saturday, December 10, at the ESPRIT arena in Düsseldorf between IBF, WBA, WBO, IBO and The Ring magazine world heavyweight championship incumbent Wladimir Klitschko and challenger Jean-Marc Mormeck (35-4-0, 22ko), of France, had to be cancelled due to a kidney colic of Klitschko (56-3-0, 49ko).


Last Saturday, Wladimir Klitschko underwent an operation removing a kidney stone. After initial recovery, he had to cancel his participation at a RTL TV show last night due to recurring pain.

Prof. Dr. Peter Albers – head of the urology department of the University Hospital Düsseldorf – said: “In his current state it would not be reasonable to compete in a world championship.

“After two surgeries within 24 hours, everyone needs time to recover.”

The plans for rescheduling the fight involve March 3 as the possible date: “Purchased tickets retain their validity,” said Bernd Boente, the managing director for K2.
