Evander Holyfield Targets The Povetkin-Chagaev Winner

By Ruslan Chikov

Four-time heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield, 48-years-old, is trying to secure the winner of Saturday's fight between Alexander Povetkin and Ruslan Chagaev, who battle for the WBA's "regular" heavyweight title in Germany. Holyfield told German reporter Georg Ebro that he recently held a meeting in Germany with Povetkin's promoter Kalle Sauerland to discuss the possibility of facing Povetkin, if he wins the fight.

"I want the winner of the world championship fight between Alexander Povetkin and Ruslan Chagaev. The fight between Chagaev and Povetkin is very interesting. Teddy Atlas is a very good trainer. Povetkin is the favorite for me. He was an Olympic champion and world amateur champion, and he's undefeated. I love boxing and I feel fit. My dream is to become world champion again," Holyfield said.
