Report: Povetkin camp wants referee punished

The camp of Alexander Povetkin plans to lodge a protest, not to overturn the result of Povetkin’s loss to Wladimir Klitschko last Saturday in Moscow, but instead to penalize referee Luis Pabon for his handling of the fight. Povetkin’s agent Dmitry Ivanov told RIA Novosti’s sports affiliate R-Sport that the protest to world sanctioning bodies is to ensure “this referee never again oversees a high-level fight.” Ivanov stated that Pabon, likely the WBA’s most often used world title referee, didn’t implement any measures against Klitschko to make it a clean, fair and entertaining fight.
