TOTOWA, NJ , April 1, 2011

Former World Heavyweight Champion Sergei Liakhovich has been forced to withdraw from his planned fight with Johnnie White on the undercard of Tomasz Adamek vs. Kevin McBride on Saturday, April 9th at Newark's Prudential Center Arena, Kathy Duva of Main Events announced today.

 “Unfortunately, Sergei reported that he suffered a minor rib injury in training, yesterday, and his doctor recommended that he wait until at least mid-April before he engages in any contact,” she explained.  “We had been looking forward to presenting Sergei for the first time in Newark and we are so sorry that his first appearance with Main Events will have to wait,  but what is most important is that Sergei recover fully from his injury.”

 Main Events is searching for an alternate date for Liakhovich and plans to make an announcement as soon as it is arranged.
