Povetkin-Takam Clash Eyed For 10/24 In Moscow

A heavyweight clash between former heavyweight titlist Alexander Povetkin and Carlos Takam is in the works for October 24, BoxingScene.com has learned Tuesday afternoon. 

The fight, once officially signed, will land in Moscow, Russia, with the WBC Silver heavyweight title at stake. The significance of the "title" on the line provides yet another contender in a growing list of heavyweights waiting for the winner of a yet-to-be-scheduled heavyweight clash between Bermane Stiverne and Deontay Wilder. 

Povetkin (27-1, 19KOs) rebounded from the lone loss of his career–a 12-round decision to Wladimir Klitschko last October–with a 7th round stoppage of former title challenger Manuel Charr this past May. The loss to Klitschko ended Povetkin's two-year stay as a heavyweight titlist. 

Takam (30-1-1, 23KOs) enters the fight on the heels of a breakout 2014 campaign. The Cameroon-born heavyweight caught worldwide attention with an impressive showing in a controversial 10-round draw with Mike Perez this past January in New York City. Many felt Takam was cheated out of a win, but the 33-year old simply moved forward with the next task at hand, scoring a landslide decision over American heavyweight Tony Thompson this past June in his adopted homeland of France.

If Haye, Fury, Wilder had half the courage of Povetkin, the HW division would be sensational.

[QUOTE=yoz]Credit to Povetkin. He could have easily faded away into obscurity after the Wlad defeat.[/QUOTE] Povetkin is currently the 2nd best HW of the world.

comment by GhostBlade, on 08-06-2014
After Wlad, Takam will probably be Povetkin's biggest test. We'll see if Povetkin still has what it takes to be a contender in the division. Povetkin better save his energy because Takam is a huge workhorse as seen in the Mike Perez fight and Takam will punish Povetkin if he depletes his energy e...

Sounds great. I still rate Povetkin right behind Wlad, but I´m curious to see if Takam can give him a tough fight.

Excellent fight and if Takam wins I would like to see him as a voluntary defense for Wlad next year Pulev-Takam-Stiverne/Wilder Not bad
