On February 25th, Alexander Povetkin (23-0, 16KOs) will make the second defense of his WBA "regular" world heavyweight title in Stuttgart, Germany against Marco Huck (34-1, 25KOs), the WBO's cruiserweight champion. Some questions have been raised on why Povetkin made a decision to face Huck, instead of the undefeated British/Commonwealth champion Tyson Fury (17-0, 12KOs), who challenged Povetkin in several press release documents.

Povetkin's manager Vladimir Hryunov explains that he contacted Fury's management following Povetkin's recent knockout victory over Cedric Boswell, and the British fighter was not interested in facing Povetkin at the moment. The management of Fury told Hryunov they are interested in facing Povetkin at a later date.

"The fact is this, on the morning after the fight with Cedric Boswell, we analyzed the situation and called Huck. We looked at the various options. It wasn't really [Tyson Fury] himself throwing challenges to Povetkin. Rather it was [Fury's] publicists and his promoter. When we asked them directly, Fury's team refused to fight, and they told us it would be better to stage it later on. In the future it could be a very interesting fight," Hryunov said.

Povetski might not be a problem, but other world class boxers would be. If Fury gets a world title he'll have to defend it. It's sensible to learn, for now. Not that I ever believe he'll be ready for world class.

Most sensible move by Fury and his ppl would be to put this fight off for as long as possible to keep his earning potential

How does a sport like boxing attract such big poofs like Alex Povetkin? Should have taken up water polo or something of that nature.It's people like him that hurt this sport.
