Povetkin vs Rahman Appears To Be The Frontrunner

By Rick Reeno

Sources with direct knowledge of the ongoing negotiations have advised BoxingScene.com that former two-time WBC heavyweight champion Hasim Rahman (50-7-2, 41KOs) is the current frontrunner to face WBA "regular" champion Alexander Povetkin (22-0, 15KOs) in December. I've been told the discussions are going very well and a deal could be reached as early as next week. No final decision has been made on the date, but Povetkin's return is sure to land on December 3 or December 17.

If for some reason the two sides are unable to reach an agreement, there are other names being considered but Evander Holyfield is reportedly NOT one of them.

[QUOTE=PD21]Holyfield - Povetkin would be better than Rahman vs Povetkin. Evander is a legend and he's already beaten Rahman. Last time I saw Hasim he was being destroyed by Klitschko. Before that Evander beat him. Maybe team Povetkin dont think he is ready for a washed up 50 year old and want hi...
