Povetkin: Team Klitschko Manipulates The Public Opinion

By Alexander Pavlov

WBA "regular" heavyweight champion Alexander Povetkin (25-0, 17 KOs) has accused unified king Wladimir Klitschko (59-3, 50 KOs) of using the media to create a false image of the actual situation going on behind the scenes. Povetkin, although he withrew twice in the past when offered a date against Wladimir, is now making a heavy push to make the fight happen. His promoter, Sauerland Event, tried to make the fight, but Wladimir was granted the capability of having a voluntary defense on April 6th.

"For a long time I've wanted to fight with Klitschko. They have a strong team and because of that factor they manipulate the public and make it appear that they want to fight me and I'm the one avoiding him. Klitschko is a strong opponent and it is difficult to predict the outcome of our fight, but every Russian boxer enters the ring to win and does not feel fear from anyone. For me, what counts is that my coach Kostya Tszyu believes in me," Povetkin said.

Povetkin`s problem is that he has the wrong promoter. Sauerland has problems with his German TV partner ARD and bad TV ratings and therefore wants the Klitschko fight on that station. Without Sauerland the Klitschko vs Povetkin fight would already…

Povetkin is not good. He is also chinny...he'll get laid out early if this fight is made.
