Sources: Povetkin-Rahman To Remain at Upton Park

by Rick Reeno

Contrary to the circulating information in Russia and Germany, sources close to Sauerland Event have advised BoxingScene.com that Alexander Povetkin (24-0, 16KOs) vs. Hasim Rahman (50-7-2, 41KOs) will remain on Frank Warren's huge event on July 14th at Upton Park in West Ham, London.

According to several reports in Eastern Europe, German cable network ARD is refusing to televise the controversial heavyweight fight between Dereck Chisora and David Haye - and because of ARD's position Sauerland was planning to move the Povetkin-Rahman encounter to a venue in Germany.

However, BoxingScene was told those reports are not accurate - and Povetkin-Rahman will remain in London - with or without ARD's televised support of Haye-Chisora.

The fight between Haye and Chisora is causing a political war of words in the UK. Warren is involved in a public battle with the British Boxing Board of Control - because Haye and Chirora are not licensed by the BBBoC and the show is being sanctioned by an outside body, the Luxembourg Boxing Federation.

i hope it stays on the card because it's a good undercard fight & it's for the #1 WBA contender spot not a world title. this regular champion stuff is rubbish. wladimir is the WBA champion.
