n George Foreman, the world's oldest heavyweight champion at 46, has been stripped of his World Boxing Association title. The WBA executive committee, meeting in Atlantic City on Saturday, rejected Foreman's appeal to have his bout against the German, Axel Schulz, scheduled for 22 April in Las Vegas, sanctioned. Foreman has indicated that he will go to court to contest the decision.

Tony Tucker and Bruce Seldon, ranked No 1 and No 2 respectively, will now fight for the WBA championship, although Foreman will still hold the International Boxing Federation version, which he won together with the WBA title when he knocked out Michael Moorer last November.
