Klitschko-Povetkin: Tyson and Holyfield Are Expected

By Yuri Tarantin

The Vice President of the Professional Boxing Federation of Russia, Andrei Ryabinsky, said that he plans to invite a number of legendary boxers to the fall showdown between WBO/IBF/IBO/WBA heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (60-3, 50KOs) and mandatory challenger Alexander Povetkin (25-0, 17KOs). The event will take place in Moscow, Russia.

To seal the deal, Povetkin must defeat Andrzej Wawrzyk on May 17th, also in Moscow. Ryabinsky says former champions Mike Tyson and Evander Holyfield are going to attend Klitschko-Povetkin.

"For the fight between Povetkin and Klitschko, I plan to gather together all of the great boxers of the past," Ryabinsky said. "Tyson and Holyfield are sure to attend the Klitschko-Povetkin fight. Also, Vitali Klitschko confirmed to me that he will be present at our event on May 17th in Crocus City."

Is there any pundit who actually rates Povetkin and thinks that he stands a chance here?

Good. Tyson said he tries to distance himself from Boxing nowadays.
