According to its official web portal, Zürich-based Hallenstadion will be the venue for the return of Alexander Povetkin (22-0, 15 KOs), as he make his first defense of the WBA (“regular”) heavyweight championship. Hallenstadion’s news list announces that the first ever Russian super heavyweight gold medalist will face multi-time champion and ring legend Evander Holyfield (44-10-2, 29 KOs) on December 17, almost three years after Holyfield suffered a controversial loss to Nikolai Valuev at the very same stadium.
Holyfield is presently unranked by the World Boxing Association. Hallenstadion seats around 13,000 fans.

[QUOTE=problem?]Roy was never caught doing roids unlike Vitali. Vitali as far as I'm concerned is a complete joke and a fraud of a fighter, he would be a nobody without all his roids. Complete fraud 100%. I hold Audley Harrison in much higher regard than Vitali Klitschko. Atleast Audley ...

[quote=paulf]I've always felt Holyfield was robbed from making history against Valuev[/quote] I always felt the opposite: Evan Fields didn't do enough against Valuev to win the title. But in hindsight the time line would have went like this: * Fields wins * Stages a unification bout against Wl...
