By Ruslan Chikov

Former WBC heavyweight champion Oleg Maskaev, who this past weekend returned to the ring after a three year layoff, says WBA "regular" champ Alexander Povetkin (25-0, 17KOs) has to step up and face WBO/IBO/WBA/IBF king Wladimir Klitschko (59-3, 50)KOs) in the coming months.

The WBA has ordered Klitschko and Povetkin to face each other. They have until January 17th to reach and agreement before a purse bid is scheduled. The fight has to take place by the end of February.

The fight was postponed twice in the past and the moment has now arrived for Povetkin to proceed, Maskaev said.

"I think it is finally time for Povetkin [to fight Wladimir]. He was an Olympic champion, he is a promising fighter. Alexander was in this position before, [where he was scheduled to face Wladimir], and then one thing happened, and then another thing happened - where the fight was postponed. It's great that now everything is in line," Maskaev said.

Povetkin has a good chin, and good pedigree. If he was 10lb lighter i'd say he'd be competitive in the fight. He is a much much better opponent than Mormeck, or Tony Thompson.

[QUOTE=The Weebler II]Tyson was going to KO Buster easily. We'll only know how good Povetkin really is when we see him at his best against the best.[/QUOTE] You think Buster would beat Povetkin H2H??? I'm just saying.....this isn't some mega fight or anything. It'll be nice to see Wlad w...

[QUOTE=4Corners]Wlad is going to win easily....either by KO or UD. And that's what I was saying. Once that happens, who's going to remember this Klitschko-Povetkin fight, even 5 years from now??? No one, it'll be like Ibragimov all over again.[/QUOTE] Tyson was going to KO Buster easily. ...

[QUOTE=The Weebler II]I would say it rather depends upon what happens in the fight.[/QUOTE] Wlad is going to win easily....either by KO or UD. And that's what I was saying. Once that happens, who's going to remember this Klitschko-Povetkin fight, even 5 years from now??? No one, it'll be li...

[QUOTE=4Corners]Honestly, it's time for this to happen and it's a decent win for Wlad given the state of the division today.....but who's really going to remember Klitschko-Povetkin 10 years from now??? It's not as if Povetkin is thought of as a great or even a good fighter for that matter.[/QUOT...
