KLITSCHKO ON HIS OWN IN THE CORNER TONIGHT

For the first time in his pro career, Wladimir Klitschko won't have brother Vitali in his corner for a fight when he meets Cuba's Eliseo Castillo (18-0-1, 14 KOs) tonight (9:45, HBO).

Vitali was scheduled for back surgery earlier this week for a bone spur.

"It's something unusual that Vitali won't be in my corner for the first time in my 47 (pro) fights," Wladimir Klitschko (43-3, 39 KOs) said. "Physically, he will not be with me, but mentally, he'll be there all my life."
