Chisora, Dimitrenko Scored Povetkin vs. Huck as a Draw
By Luke Furman
Heavyweight contenders Dereck Chisora and Alexander Dimitrenko sat ringside last Saturday night at the Porsche Arena in Stuttgart, Germany - and witnessed the battle between WBA "regular" champion Alexander Povetkin (24-0, 16KOs) and WBO cruiserweight king Marco Huck (34-2, 25KOs).
Povetkin started off great but faded in the later rounds, which allowed Huck to take over and come close to scoring a knockout in the final round.
After twelve rounds of war, Povetkin won a controversial majority decision win - with scores of 114-114, 116-113 and 116-112. Chisora and Dimitrenko agreed with the first scorecard, feeling the fight was a even draw. Both believe a rematch should happen.
However, former middleweight champion Arthur Abraham was also sitting at ringside. He saw Huck as the clear winner.

I watched the fight live and was shocked by the scores. Huck looked much better and Povetkin was in big danger, even wobbling. Sunday morning I watched it again and my score is 115:113 for Huck! BTW: can someone please…Comment by leonidas480 on 02-27-2012
