Inside the Alexander Povetkin training camp

By Przemek Garczarczyk

Undefeated as a professional, 2004 Athens Olympic champion from Russia, Alexander Povetkin (26-0, 18 KO) likes to keep his preparations for his upcoming battle with WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO champion from Ukraine Wladimir Klitschko (60-3, 52 KO) very much behind closed doors. On October 5, in Moscow’s Oliympyjskij Sportcomplex there’s almost everything to win for Povetkin – four “Dr Steelhammer” belts with only other one in the possession of Wlad’s older brother Vitali Klitschko. Russia’s “Channel 1”, who will broadcast the Klitschko-Povetkin fight domestically, caught a rare glimpse of Povetkin’s training camp. Klitschko-Povetkin, organized by Andrey Ryabinsky, CEO of MIC Group of Companies, will be televised in US live and on a same day tape-delay basis by HBO.
