Former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski will not be medically cleared in time to make his professional boxing debut on June 27 at The Staples Center in Los Angeles, California, on the undercard of the Victor Ortiz vs. Marcos Maidana fight on HBO according to Sherdog.com.

Under the tutelage of world renowned boxing trainer Freddie Roach, who has been working with “The Pitbull” over the past year or so to help him improve his striking, Arlovski had signed with Oscar De La Hoya’s Golden Boy Promotions to take a crack at the sweet science after coming up short in his WAMMA world title fight against champion Fedor Emelianenko back on January 24 at Affliction: “Day of Reckoning.”

With former boxing champion Michael Moorer by his side, Arlovski accepted a short-notice bout against Strikeforce heavyweight wrecking ball Brett “The Grimm” Rogers at the June 6 “Lawler vs. Shields” event to satisfy the last fight on his Affliction contract (Affliction sponsored his appearance).

So where now for AA ?

Unlikely the UFC will re-sign him and it's also doubtful Affliction would want to tie him to another massive contract....
