Team Povetkin Hope For Klitschko Deal Before Purse Bid

By Ruslan Chikov

Vladimir Hyrunov, the manager of WBA "regular" heavyweight beltholder Alexander Povetkin (25-0, 17KOs), is hoping a deal can be reached to fight IBO/WBO/WBA/IBF champion Wladimir Klitschko (59-3, 50KOs) - before both sides are forced to enter a purse bid.

The WBA ordered both sides to reach an agreement by January 17th, and then a purse bid will be ordered. On two occasions, the fight was ordered to take place by the IBF, and both times it went to a purse bid, and both times Klitschko's company, K2, put down the winning bid. The fight never came off as planned in either situation.

"The negotiations with Klitschko's promoter is already underway - they began simultaneously with the WBA's decision. The battle of two Olympic champions is creating a lot of interest all over the world. We would like to reach an agreement before the deadline of January 17. A lot of fans are waiting for this fight to take place. One of the options for a venue could be Moscow or another option is Germany," Hyrunov said.

Because of the ARD/RTL tv contract conflict, the fight will most likely go to purse bid and the fight won't happen until May.

[QUOTE=Medved;12855188]I love this. Povetkin belt is fake. Wlad has won that belt like 2 times now (or is it 3 times) ? He beats Chagaev who was champ, but WBA decides not to give belt to Wlad instead give it…

Povetkin needs to stick to knocking out black Americans. He'll never be ready for Klitschkos

The question here is are the Klitschko's willing to pay Povetkin a purse that is equal to the value of his entire career. Reason being is if he gets in the ring with Wlad his career is over after that…
