Alexander Povetkin's Manager Denies Oquendo Fight

By Rick Reeno

Vladimir Hryunov, manager of WBA "regular" heavyweight champion Alexander Povetkin(25-0, 17 KOs), has denied published reports that his boxer will be facing Fres Oquendo (35-7, 23 KOs) on May 17th at the Crocus City Hall in Moscow, Russia.

"This is not true. Everybody wants to fight Povetkin," Hryunov told BoxingScene.com.

As we previously reported, Hryunov is promoting an event at the above referenced venue, on May 17th, with WBA cruiserweight champion Denis Lebedev (25-1, 19 KOs) defending his title against “champion in recess” Guillermo “El Felino” Jones (38-3-2, 30 KOs). Don King is co-promoting the event with Hryunov.

Only Povetkin's promoter Sauerland Event, says Hryunov, makes the final decisions on who Povetkin fights, and the date/location.

The only two fights I want to see Povetkin in are with Wlad or Huck II.

[QUOTE=LacedUp;13188169]Why do you say that?[/QUOTE] I've read that they're considering that offer so if they even think about that kind of fighter I won't except they would consider Haye. Plus from what I've heard and read so far Jovo Pudar…
