Klitschko's Trainer Not Happy With Povetkin-Chagaev

Emanuel Steward, trainer of WBO/IBO/WBA/IBF heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko, is not happy with today's bout in Germany between Alexander Povetkin and Ruslan Chagaev. The two Eastern Euro boxers will clash for the WBA's vacant "regular" heavyweight title.

Wladimir, and his older brother, WBC king Vitali Klitschko, believed they had captured all of the major titles in the heavyweight division. But then the WBA upgraded Wladimir to the status of "super champion" and vacated the "regular title" that Klitschko captured last month from David Haye. Steward and many in the sport view this manuever by the WBA as a ploy to receive additional sanctioning fees from fighters.

"This is a crazy, crazy situation," Manny Steward told writer Steve Bunce. "My fighter won the title but he's been made a 'super' champion or something since then; boxing will suffer if this type of thing keeps on happening."

look at it this way: at least Povetkin isn't a Klitschko mandatory now

Forget this fake belt and just enjoy the fight, it could be nice. The winner will be a legitimate challenger for Wlad and that's all. By some ways it's a title eliminator with a minor belt.

Doesn't matter which of these paper chumpions holds the worthless wba belt. David Haye is the Champion until someone beats him while he has no broken bones in his body.
