According to manager and promoter Vladimir Hryunov, WBA "regular" heavyweight champion Alexander Povetkin (24-0, 16KOs) may possibly return on July 21 in Moscow, Russia. Povetkin was going to face mandatory challenger Hasim Rahman on July 14th in Hamburg, but the event was canceled when Rahman withdrew with a training injury.
