Wladimir Klitschko Almost Ready To Start Training Again, Must Defend Title Against Kubrat Pulev

Heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko’s bicep injury is on the mend and he is on the verge of returning to training camp ahead of his mandatory defense against Kubrat Pulev.

Klitschko is scheduled to defend his heavyweight titles on Nov. 15 against Kubrat Pulev in Germany.

The pair were originally due to meet on Sept. 6 at the O2 World arena in Hamburg, Germany, but Klitschko suffered a small tear in his left bicep during training camp and the fight was pushed until Nov. 15.

With Klitschko’s recovery on schedule, manager Bernd Boente told ESPN.com on Thursday that the champ will resume training in two weeks. He will fit in two weeks of training in South Florida, where he lives, and then head to his usual camp in the mountains of Austria for the rest of camp.

“Wladimir is on schedule and he is feeling good,” Boente said. “We’re thankful it was not a more serious injury.”
