By Luke Furman

Giant-sized Russian contender Alexander Ustinov (27-0, 21 KOs), the IBO's Intercontinental heavyweight king, wants a crack at the WBO's champion Alexander Povetkin (24-0, 16KOs). Ustinov stopped American contender Jason Gaverne (21-10-4, 10 KOs) in seven rounds on Thursday. Ranked at number three under the WBA, Ustinov - standing at 6'7 and weighing over 300-pounds - wants to face Povetkin in the near future. Povetkin defends his title against mandatory challenger Hasim Rahman on July 14th in Germany.

"My next goal is to fight with Alexander Povetkin. I'm third in the WBA's rankings, so there are no formal obstacles to prevent this fight from being organized. This [fight with Povetkin] would be an ideal springboard [to fight the Klitschko brothers]. But that would be at the end of the road of my dreams. So far I'm only in the middle ground," Ustinov said.

'still in the middle ground' He wants another 10 journeyman before he fights a decent opponent, who watches his fights!?
