Glazkov is Giving Povetkin a Shot To Beat W. Klitschko

By Ruslan Chikov

Undefeated heavyweight prospect Vyacheslav Glazkov (14-0, 10KOs) is giving Alexander Povetkin a good shot at beating WBO/IBO/WBA/IBF heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko. The World Boxing Association recently ordered the two boxers to clash before the end of February. They were given until January 17th to reach an agreement or a purse bid will be ordered.

Glazkov is a little surprised with so many people writing Povetkin off and predicting a one-sided beatdown. Alexander was a very talented amateur and won a gold medal in the 2004 Olympic games. He is undefeated (25-0, 17KOs) and recently hired Hall of Famer boxer Kostya Tszyu to be his new trainer.

"I know that a lot of fans are not giving him much of a chance in the fight with Wladimir. But this mindset, in my opinion, is wrong. Yes, Klitschko is the favorite here. But, Povetkin is also a very high-class boxer, with a strong position - and a fighter like that can never be written off," Glazkov said.

[QUOTE=4Corners;12852589]God himself couldn't help Povetkin beat Wlad. [/QUOTE] Don't rule out God. He was there when David beat Goliath and that stood as the biggest Heavyweight upset for more than 2000 years until Douglas beat Tyson.

God himself couldn't help Povetkin beat Wlad. Glad to see Glazkov beat Hamer's ass. I'd like to see Glazkov fight Cunningham or Jennings.

I'd love to see Glazkov-Jennings. There are a lot of interesting matchups to be made at heavyweight right now.
