GENEVA (AP) - WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko will defend his title in Bern on Dec. 12 against American Kevin Johnson.
The 38-year-old Klitschko, who is 38-2 with seven knockouts, defeated Cris Arreola last month in Los Angeles, winning after Arreola's corner wouldn't let him out for the 11th round.
Johnson is 22-0-1 with nine knockouts. In May, the 30-year-old beat Devin Vargas in a matchup of undefeated fighters.
