Ryabinsky: Roach Will Train Povetkin For Klitschko Bout

By Luke Furman

According to businessman Andrei Ryabinsky, vice-president of the Russian Federation of Professional Boxing, and co-promoter of the huge heavyweight showdown on October 5th in Moscow, confirms that veteran trainer Freddie Roach will train Russian Alexander Povetkin (24-0, 18KOs) for his fight with WBA/WBO/IBO/IBF champion Wladimir Klitschko (60-3, 51KOs) at Olimpiyskiy Stadium.

"Just a little information that no one knows about, Freddie Roach will prepare Alexander Povetkin [for Klitschko]," Ryabinsky revealed.

Povetkin has jumped around from coach to coach in the last few years, from Alexander Zimin to Teddy Atlas and most recently Kostys Tszyu. Povetkin's training ethics have been called into question in the past. Roach has several notable training camps coming up in the fall, so it will be interesting to see where Povetkin fits in. It has been well documented that Povetkin hates training in the United States, which led to his separation from Teddy Atlas.

Roach has trained other Eastern Euro fighters, including Dmitry Kirilov, Roman Karmazin, Ruslan Provodnikov and Vyacheslav Senchenko.

There was a brief second were the possibility of Povetkin giving Wlad at least something to take notice of but that seems to have diminished but hey you never know honestly his best option might be to just go all…

[QUOTE=Mikhnienko;13528167]I don't give a fu3k if you're the Nikola Tesla of boxing trainers. When a 33yr old HW gets with a new coach right before the biggest fight of his life its a stupid move nothing is accomplished in one…

Good to see Freddy working actively with the Russians. They are responsible for keeping Boxing alive in the entire region where Muay Thai and K1 are competing very heavily.

If it weren't for Pacquiao's badass run, Roach would have been retired like 5 years ago. He sucks. Wlad will eventually land thudding 1-2 and end Povetkin.
