In a move that should surprise no one, Wladimir Klitschko said that his kidney stones were a new class of pain according to a recent interview on Boxing Scene.
"I'm devastated. I suddenly had incredible pain. The worst I've ever experienced. I had perfectly prepared [for this fight] for seven weeks. Then I get knocked out [of the fight] by a small three-millimeter kidney stone. I am totally disappointed."
According to Wikipedia, usually it takes at least a 3 mm stone to require surgery. Symptoms can include nausea, fever, vomiting, and general pain. These are all symptoms that can all be a severe problem when going through a training camp. Basically having a severe pain in the area of the body where there is large concentration of nerves is not a pleasant experience. Apparently being punched in the face or even knocked out is no match for a well-placed crystal.
Unfortunately, this event only delayed the upcoming fight between Wladimir Klitschko and Jean Marc Mormeck instead of cancelling it completely. This fight is a complete mismatch and pretty much no one has any interest in watching it. Mormeck has had a grand total of three fights in the heavyweight division and his only claim to fame is that he knocked down David Haye. There are a bunch of better fights that can and should be made with dominant Wladimir. Adamek, Chisora, Arreola, Povetkin, and Fury are all better candidates just to name a few. Honestly, the only fight with the Klitschkos that should be made is a fight between the two of them. Since this will never happen they will continue to make fights against inferior competition. What do you guys think is the best possible fight that can be made right now for Wladmir Klitschko that is not with Vitali?
