Photo: Rahman is Furious Over Povetkin Poster Snub

By Ruslan Chikov

Former two-time WBC heavyweight champion Hasim Rahman (50-7-2, 41KOs) is furious with a perceived "lack of respect" in the pre-fight promotion for his title fight with Alexander Povetkin (24-0, 16KOs), the holder of the WBA's "regular" title. On Thursday, Rahman  appeared at a press conference in Germany and became furious when he realized that his image was missing from several promotional items, including the fight posters. Instead, the promotional items include photos of Povetkin and heavyweight contender Kubrat Pulev, who faces Alexander Ustinov in the co-feature. Rahman promised to teach everyone a lesson by punishing Povetkin when they face each other on September 29th at Sporthalle in Hamburg.

This smack in the face to Rahman may just be what he needed to knock out Povetkin.

I thought Rahman dies a few years back. isn't rockhead 50 years old? kind of sad to see this stiff trying to fight.

Then check and agree contractually the promotional materials, if breeched you have place to sue. Basic business. It is bad though. There will, be some people no matter how foolish - that'll think Hasim Rahman is white. :lol1:
