Tszyu Won’t Attend Klitschko-Povetkin, Zab Judah Will

By Alexey Sukachev, photos by Gregory Stangrit/Allboxing.ru

Former undisputed light welterweight champion of the world and 2011 IBHOF entrée Kostya Tszyu, who had been training both Denis Lebedev and Alexander Povetkin in 2012 and 2013 - up until Lebedev’s painful defeat to Guillermo Jones, won’t attend his former protégé’s bout against Wladimir Klitschko, which will be conducted tomorrow at Olimpiyskiy Palace of Sports.

“I won’t attend the show just because I haven’t been invited”, Tszyu told to RIA Novosti media agency. “Surely, I feel deep mortification. I have a feeling of being used and thrown out. It was my pleasure working with such talented guys as Denis Lebedev. Now I can teach other coaches technique and methodology that helped me to be what I am”.

While Tszyu won’t be on hand tomorrow night, but his former bitter rival and former kayo victim Zab Judah is in Moscow, alongside other stellar persona: “Big” George Foreman, Michael Buffer, Jameel McCline and Dereck Chisora, all of whom were presented during today’s weigh-in. Team Ilie is represented by another of Tszyu’s opponents – Oktay Urkal. There are rumors, circulating that Lennox Lewis and Roy Jones Jr. are also going to be in the city, as well as Hollywood stars Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone.

Tszyu is smart to stay home. Wlad will either win a wide UD or stop Povetkin.

They should not have fired Tszyu. But tonight Povetkin gets his butt kicked and not to short!

The title made me laugh. Is Zab afraid of Tszyu or something? haha

Thats how they treat their fighters!!!! First, they tried to get under Wladimir's skin but giving him helmet (implying that he will need that during the fight), then they wanted Chisora to examine Wladimir's wraps. But when Povetkin sees Wladimir…

Interesting. Wonder if this is because Zoo did not pull Denis from the fight against Jones?
