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.

[QUOTE=Harry Balls]Both mens choices for hw opponents so far suggest to me they like the safe route unless there's huge money involved. Povetkin has had a few good wins but that's many years ago.[/QUOTE] This seems to be the route of more and more heavyweight fighters. Fighting less often a...

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

[QUOTE=LacedUp]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 will most likely be announced today as Haye opponent. I really ...
