Howard will have fun with this....will add more fuel to the fire.

sucks though, I wanted to see this fight go down...maybe they can set up Howard vs Lennox or something until then.

Guys shouldn't be getting hurt in training all the time. I understand a fluke thing from time to time, but there has been WAY too many guys getting hurt lately. Guys have to be going way too hard in training. I understand that they want to go hard to be prepared, but what does it matter if you don't fight because you are hurt.

that is too bad, I like Howard as a up n comer, and we all know Rumble is a good striker with serious ko power.

I hope they give doomsday a good mattchup

I'm guessing most of these injuries are caused by being too macho while sparring.
