This weights are in for Saturday's big heavyweight doubleheader in Erfurt, Germany. In a fight for the vacant WBA "regular" title, Ruslan Chagaev (27-1-1, 17 KOs) and Alexander Alexander Povetkin (21-0, 15 KOs) weighed exactly the same - 105 kilograms [231-pounds]. Former champion Evander Holyfield (44-10-2, 29 KOs) was present at the weighin and wants to fight the winner. In the other big heavyweight clash, undefeated Robert Helenius (15-0, 10KOs) was 243.6-pounds, while former WBO champion Sergei Liakhovich (25-3, 16KOs) was 232-pounds.
