Highlights from the final press conference for Saturday’s WBA heavyweight title fight in Hamburg, Germany, between titleholder Alexander Povetkin and WBA mandatory challenger Hasim Rahman.

Hasim Rahman: My focus is on doing what I know how to do best. I think that’s enough to beat any man.

Alexander Povetkin: The preparation went well. I have great respect for Hasim Rahman and his experience.

Povetkin’s trainer Kostya Tszyu: In the time we’ve worked together, Alexander has already improved by 40%

Note: Rahman’s trainer Eddie Mustapha Muhammad hasn’t arrived in Germany yet as he is delayed by visa problems.
