Sauerland: Chisora, Huck Future Candidates For Povetkin

By Alexander Pavlov

According to promoter Kalle Sauerland, WBA "regular" heavyweight champion Alexander Povetkin (24-0, 16KOs) has a lot of options - if he gets past former two-time beltholder Hasim Rahman on July 14th in Germany.

Regarding Chisora, nothing is certain because the British boxer recently lost his license to box. His promoter, Frank Warren, is appealing the Britsh Boxing Board's decision to remove Chisora's license. Chisora made a big name for himself in Germany with his controversial behavior in February - when he smacked Vitali Klitschko at the weigh-in and brawled with David Haye at the post-fight press conference.

Another lucrative option is WBO cruiserweight king Marco Huck, who fought Povetkin in February to a controversial majority decision loss.

"In connection [to a Chisora fight], its hard to say anything - because at the moment Chisora has no license to box. It would be a great fight, but first Chisora needs to obtain a boxing license. You should also keep in mind that we have great respect for certain people...because first there is the fight with Rahman, and then we'll see [what happenes after that]. We can also arrange a rematch [for Povetkin] with Marco Huck - this year or next," Sauerland said.
