Povetkin vs Chagaev Negotiations For WBA Title Fight

By Per Ake Persson

With Wladimir Klitschko´s dominant peformance against David Haye to unify the WBO/IBO/WBA/IBF heavyweight titles this past weekend in Hamburg, it appears to be a foregone conclusion that the WBA will declare him as being the "super champion." This move would leave the "regular" title open for a fight between mandatory challenger Ruslan Chagaev, and highest ranked available challenger Alexander Povetkin.
 
Sauerland, who promote Povetkin, confirm negotiations with Universum, who handle Chagaev, for the fight to happen in the coming months.
 
It´s a good matchup between two guys who a bit below the giant Klitschko brothers and maybe David Haye can fight the winner.

Does alex realize he's not young and he's not a ticket seller? I could understsmd if he wanted to milk his fam base for awhile like David haye. But that ain't the case. Klitschko is the lottery of the heavyweight…

Classic Povetkin. He avoids the K Brothers for three years and then gets what he wants: a title shot without having to fight one of them. He must think Chagaev has slipped or he wouldn't take the fight.

you know whats funny. if we had one undisputed klitschko as champion, he would have to face all these new up and comers alone. it sure would make for some exciting fights and at least give one them a shot…
