Klitschko-Povetkin Clash Pushed Hard By The WBA

BoxingScene.com has been advised by well informed sources that the World Boxing Association is pushing hard for Wladimir Klitschko (59-3, 50KOs) to defend his heavyweight crown against mandatory challenger Alexander Povetkin (25-0, 17KOs).

The sanctioning body notified both sides, by letter, that Wladimir must defend his title against Povetkin by February 26th.

Klitschko was made the WBA's "super champion" a few years ago. The belt became vacant after Klitschko defeated then "regular" champion David Haye last July. Povetkin captured the vacant "regular" title" with a twelve round decision victory over Ruslan Chagaev last August.

The WBA already started a 30 day negotiations period earlier this week. Both sides have until January 17 to reach an agreement or a purse bid will be called. It appears the WBA is going to make it very difficult for Wladimir to receive a special permit to postpone the mandatory obligation, as Wladimir made a voluntary defense against Mariusz Wach last month.

[QUOTE=Andrew5550]iPhone auto correct. You know full well I meant I've seen pretty much all of their fights. And wow - Haye should have been dq'd?? Just tells me everything about you. If Haye should have been dq'd in that fight Wlad should have been banned from boxing for all the holding/grabbing...

[QUOTE=Ravens Fan]Do you even know what arrogant means? As far as the Ruiz fight is concerned. I thought that it was actually pretty sad that Haye had to cave in the back of the head of an old and washed up Ruiz to win. Simply put, Haye really should have been disqualified in that foul fest of an...
