Povetkin-Huck Winner To Face Rahman, Deal Reached

By Hilmar Rojas

Promoters Gregory Cohen and Chris Meyer of Sauerland Event, legal representatives of Marco Huck, Alexander Povetkin, and Hasim Rahman, agreed on the fight with Rahman, on Monday morning.

Huck, the WBO cruiserweight king, will step on the ring on February 25 at the Porsche-Arena, in Stuttgart, Baden-Württemberg, Germany. He challenges Russia's Alexander Povetkin for the WBA's "regular" heavyweight title.

The meeting took place at the WBA's office, where Cohen (GCP LLP) and Meyer (Sauerland Event), agreed that the winner of the Huck and Povetkin bout should face the mandatory challenger Rahman in 120 days.
