Povetkin: Main Objective For 2012 is Wladimir Klitschko

By Ruslan Chikov

Undefeated WBA "reagular" heavyweight champion Alexander Povetkin (22-0, 15KOs) is continuing to train hard for his scheduled defense against Cedric Boswell on December 3rd in Helsinki. Povetkin is pleased with the early date of his first title defense. The boxer plans to enjoy the holidays and then he's going to return to the gym to begin training for a career-changing 2012.

Povetkin wants to face IBO/WBO/WBA/IBF champion Wladimir Klitschko in 2012. Twice in the past, Povetkin was in line for Wladimir, but the Russian Olympian wasn't ready. Now he believes that he's gained the necessary experience to give Wladimir a real fight.

"I am pleased that I'll be able to rest on New Year's Eve. Shortly after the fight [with Boswell], I will have some important dates. First, the birthday of my girlfriend, and then my beloved daughter. After that will be holidays, and then I'll spend time with my friends and socialize. But, I want to stay in the best shape possible for any upcoming fights. The main objective for 2012 - to enter the ring against Wladimir Klitschko," Povetkin told journalist Dmitry Grebenshchikov.

I don't buy it. Then again, maybe he's being pressured to cash out.

I like Povetkin, but he won't be ready for Wladimir in 2012, actually I don't think he'll ever be ready for him skillwise / mentally. It would be a KO or RTD for Wlad in the later rounds, no matter…
