Marco Huck Challenges Povetkin and Alexander Accepts

By Per Ake Persson

Helsinki, Finland -  On Saturday night, Alexander Povetkin retained the WBA "regular" heavyweight title with an eight round knockout over Cedric Boswell in what was his best performance since the win over Eddie Chambers. Povetkin had some trouble with Boswell in the first but dominated from then on finally hurting the challenger with a left hook and then knocking him out with a right at 2:58. Boswell was trailing 70-63 on two cards and 69-64 on the third after seven.
 
At the post-fight press conference, Povetkin was challenged by WBO cruiserweight king Marco Huck and accepted the challenge. "We can do it tonight," said Povetkin's trainer Teddy Atlas. "No problem!"

Huck would later tell reporters that he planned to vacate his WBO crown to pursue a fight with Povetkin.

Atlas also explained that the key to victory was to take away Boswell´s jab and Povetkin did that well.

God damn it. I was lookin forward to Huck Afolabi II. Can't hate Huck for going where the money is, but he'll get outboxed by Povetkin.
