Meyer: Klitschko Terms Will Likely Crack Povetkin Bout

By Ruslan Chikov

Last Saturday night in Germany, unbeaten Olympic gold medal winner Alexander Povetkin captured the WBA's "regular" heavyweight title with a twelve round unanimous decision over Ruslan Chagaev. The victory makes Povetkin the mandatory contender to the WBA's super champion, Wladimir Klitschko, who also has the WBO/IBO/IBF titles around his waist. Povetkin has been positioned to fight Klitschko in the past, twice, as the IBF's mandatory, and both times the fight fell through.

Sauerland Event's General Manager Chris Meyer, who promotes Povetkin, doesn't expect the Klitschko fight to happen in the immediate future. Meyer feels the contract terms that are generally presented by the Klitschkos are very one-sided in favor of the two brothers. Sauerland's other heavyweights, like David Haye and Nikolai Valuev, have also complained about the contract terms of the Klitschkos.

"I do not believe that Klitschko's contract terms would suit us. The Klitschkos are known for their slave contracts, and I do not think that we'll agree to that [kind of deal]," Meyer told reporter Alexander Pavlov.
