The Star Early Edition - - SPORT -

BOX­ING su­per­star Vladimir Kl­itschko could soon get a chance to com­plete his col­lec­tion of box­ing world ti­tle belts, in a World Box­ing Fed­er­a­tion (WBC) cham­pi­onship bout, Ger­man me­dia re­ported yes­ter­day. “Vladimir is a true box­ing icon. The WBC fully and com­pletely sup­ports a fed­er­a­tion fight,” WBC pres­i­dent Mauri­cio Su­laiman told the Sport Bild weekly. The cur­rent WBC cham­pion, Ber­mane Stiverne of Canada, will de­fend his ti­tle against Amer­i­can Deon­tay Wilder on Jan­uary 17, and Kl­itschko could then fight the win­ner. His brother, Vi­tali Kl­itschko va­cated the WBC belt last year.
