Alexander Povetkin's Options: Dimitrenko is a Possibility

By Luke Furman

Although there have been some reports in the media that on the 17th of December, in Switzerland, Alexander Povetkin (22-0, 15 KOs) will face Evander Holyfield (44-10-2, 29 KOs), the fight is not yet a foregone conclusion, according to Povetkin's manager Vladimir Hryunov. According to Hryunov, there are ongoing negotiations with several fighters - including European heavyweight champion Alexander Dimitrenko (31-1, 21 KOs).

"At the moment we are negotiating with five to six fighters, and among is Alexander Dimitrenko. For now, the final decision is still far away," Hryunov said.

why is it that every guy named as a possible next opponent for Povetkin gets the same response: '' WHO?" -- tempted to blame Atlas for overprotecting his guy but the truth is that with the exception of the K…

Dimitrenko is no great shakes as a fighter but he's a hell of a lot better than Holyfield at this stage. Makes sense as well if Povs really wants Wlad somewhere down the line. Rematch with Chambers might be nice,…
