Russian pulls out of WBC eliminator for the second time

Unbeaten British and Commonwealth champion Carl Froch has been left fuming after his May 10 showdown with Denis Inkin fell through. Froch was due to face the unbeaten Russian in an eliminator for the WBC super-middleweight title. However Inkin has now pulled out of the fight for a second time. Originally Froch was due to fight the 30-year-old on March 29, only for Inkin to withdraw after being left bedridden with a virus. Now Inkin will miss the rescheduled bout after reportedly suffering a slipped disc in his back in training. Froch's promoter Mick Hennessy is now trying to find a replacement opponent, with former IBF champion Alejandro Berrio tipped to be ready to step in. Berrio has won 25 of his 26 victories by KO, and only lost his IBF title to the unbeaten Lucien Bute. Froch is due to share the bill in Nottingham with WBC light-welterweight champion Junior Witter, who fights unbeaten American Timothy Bradley.
