Photos: Povetkin Presser To Discuss Wladimir Klitschko

By Ruslan Chikov

Heavyweight contender Alexander Povetkin (26-1, 18KOs) took part in a press conference in Moscow, Russia with promoter Andrei Ryabinsky, who staged last Saturday's big card that saw Povetkin lose a twelve round decision to IBF/IBO/WBA/WBO champion Wladimir Klitschko. Ryabinsky is going to pursue a Klitschko rematch for Povetkin, who wants a second chance to get the titles. The fight had a lot of critics when it was over, with many unhappy that Klitschko was clinching and using rough tactics during the fight.

"I am the last to believe that I couldn't win. I gave 100%. I lost the battle, but I didn't lose the war. And I'm ready for a new fight with Klitschko, as soon as he agrees to this fight," Povetkin said.

Wouldn't mind the rematch at all, but it will almost certainly not happen.

[QUOTE=BostonGuy;13824781]Steve Smoger would be a great ref for this fight. I love watching fights where he refs and the two fighters clinch; he basically encourages them to fight their way out and doesn't interfere much[/QUOTE] I really like Arthur Mercante,…

AP is honest and honorable, but there is no need for Wlad to rematch him. In any other era Povetkin would be considered a great fighter.

[QUOTE=BostonGuy;13824781]In Soviet Russia, the home fighter gets robbed!... [/QUOTE] Accidents happen. Povetkin said he lost a fight, but not the war. You don't know much about the Russians.
