getting sick of Povetkin how long can he keep the regular WBA belt without getting stripped? doesn't he have to fight Wlad soon or get it taken away?

i know i'm the only one who wants to see this fight but i was hoping not to wait until september. i want to see povetkin take a real heavyweight punch. he has never fought a HW with one punch…

I can't wait! Finally I'll get a good night's sleep without the need for pills.
