Alexander Povetkin Update

By Alexey “Oscar” Potapov

Today in Moscow, a press conference was held by the team of unbeaten Alexander Povetkin (19-0, 14 KOs), the official IBF heavyweight challenger. Sauerland Event Managing Director Chris Meyer: “The IBF has established special terms during which we should agree with the Klitschko party. Our negotiations should begin on May 17th, at once upon termination of negotiations between Klitschko and Haye (Fightnews.com informed that negotiations for the Klitschko-Haye fight will be finished on Sunday). We have 30 days for negotiations. If we cannot finish them within thirty days, a purse bid will take place. Whoever offers more money will win. I’ve teen talking with very important people in Russia who want that fight was in Moscow. Kitschko-Haye probably will not take place in 2010 . We’re working on promoting Kitschko-Povetkin.”

Wladimir Hrunov, Povetkin’s manager: “We want that the boxers pass the WADA doping tests. It’s not a requirement, but a wish. It’s necessary to have this difficult negotiating process. This fight is waited for by millions fans of boxing in all countries. We would like Wladimir Klitschko to address the request for doping control in accordance with the WADA code. The doping history with the Floyd Mayweather – Manny Pacquiao fight has shown problems and has let us know that something in professional boxing should be changed. For today I do not have any doubts that Wladimir Klitschko does not take banned substances and goes through a competently organised training process and the mountain air doesn’t help him.”
