Klitschko fight rescheduled

8:04 am on 6 January 2011

The heavyweight boxing world champion Vladimir Klitschko will fight Britain's Dereck Chisora in April after their original bout was called off last month when the Ukrainian injured himself in training.

Chisora's camp says the the IBF, IBO and WBO champion had agreed on the April 30th date for the fight in Germany.

The 34-year-old Klitschko, whose older brother Vitali holds the WBC crown, has been trying to set up a fight against WBA champion Briton David Haye, who holds the only belt the Klitschkos do not have.

However, the chances of that taking place have now receded with Klitschko set to fight Chisora.
