Rahman Title Bid Called Off Because of Hand Injury!
Former two-time world heavyweight champion Hasim "The Rock" Rahman's bid for a third title has been called off because Rahman suffered a hand injury in training. The bout against WBA champion Alexander Povetkin was slated for Saturday, July 14 in Hamburg, Germany. No word on whether Rahman will get another opportunity, even though he was the mandatory challenger.
