Vladimir Hryunov, manager of WBA "regular" heavyweight champion Alexander Povetkin (24-0, 16KOs), would love to stage a huge Eastern Euro showdown between his boxer and WBA/IBF/IBO/WBO champion Wladimir Klitschko (56-3, 49KOs).

He was driven by a desire to meet one of the brothers in battle and win. It is his goal," Hryunov said.
