FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) Wladimir Klitschko's management says his heavyweight title defense against mandatory IBF challenger Kubrat Pulev has been rescheduled for Nov. 15 in Hamburg.

The fight was originally slated for Sept. 6 but had to be postponed after Klitschko tore a bicep in sparring and was forced to miss four weeks of training.

The Bulgarian challenger is undefeated in 20 fights, with 11 knockouts.

Klitschko's record is 62-3, including 53 KOs. It will be his 26th title fight.
