Povetkin Being Trained By Tszyu For Rahman Defense

Povetkin, at least on paper, has an easy defense against faded ex-champ Hasim Rahman on July 14 in London - but if he doesn't show up in better shape than he did against Huck then any fight will be dangerous.

he fought six tomato cans to get his ranking as high as WBA #3. when the WBA made their Chagaev\Povetkin fight for the interim title it jumped Rahman to the #1 spot & mandatory for the interim title fight winner. he would have had this fight over a year ago but was paid step aside money twice by ...
