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.

I think Povetkin has declined since he started working with Teddy. Dimitrenko isn't great, but I think he'd KO Povetkin.

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,…
