Promoter Andrey Ryabinsky, CEO of “MIC” Group of Companies, will host the kickoff press conference for the October 5 heavyweight world title clash between WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO champion and 1996 Olympic gold medalist Wladimir Klitschko (60-3, 51 KO) and WBA regular champion, 2004 Olympic Gold medalist Alexander Povetkin (26-0, 18 KO). The bout is being billed as “The Fight of the Decade.”

“It’s clear to everyone, that the Wladimir Klitschko-Alexander Povetkin fight is an event of global importance. Definitely, the fight of the decade. The battle between these two former Olympic champions has been discussed now for quite some time and is one that is highly anticipated by boxing fans around the world; that is why, it was so essential for us to promote this fight. Russia has not yet hosted a mega fight like this,” said Ryabinsky.
