Povetkin vs Chagaev WBA Clash is Coming Soon?

By Per Ake Persson

Russian heavyweight Alexander Povetkin, 21-0 and #2 with the WBA, is ready to fight again after his hand injury but is kept waiting. He is waiting for a world title shot. Now, anyone who looks around the heavyweight scene knows that there is no title when the champions, Vitali and Wladimir Klitschko and David Haye, are already involved in other fights.
 
Instead it's a "new" title that Povetkin is waiting for: the WBA's "regular" title, which is going to become available once the WBA appoints Haye as the super champion for his unification with WBO/IBO/IBF champ Wladimir Klitschko.
 
This move would free Haye from a mandatory defence against Ruslan Chagaev, while Chagaev vs. Povetkin would be an attractive matchup in either Russia or Germany.
