Klitschko hopes Povetkin won’t pull out

Heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko has signed to fight Alexander Povetkin on October 5th in Moscow in a much anticipated battle, however Klitschko still isn’t certain that the fight will come off. “I’m careful when it comes Povetkin,” Klitschko told the Hamburg Morgenpost. “In the past, we’ve twice agreed to fight and he pulled out. With Povetkin you never know what’ll happen. He pays close attention to what others tell him. I hope his people tell him to fight.” Klitschko also revealed that he has never met Povetkin in person and plans to begin training in August. After a near record $23 million purse bid won by Povetkin’s management team, Povetkin will have the home field advantage. “I’m not afraid of Moscow,” Wlad stated. “I’m looking forward to boxing there for the first time. But it’s true that Moscow is a hard, energetic city. You have to look at everything and be very attentive – and I will be.”
