By Alexey Sukachev

Wladimir Klitschko and Alexander Povetkin showed how serious they are taking this weekend's heavyweight championship contest by arriving at their lightest weight in years.

A slew of alphabet belts are at stake in Saturday's affair, along with the genuine lineal heavyweight crown. Klitschko showed up for the occasion and a lean and ripped 241.6 lb, his lightest weight since his first fight with Tony Thompson more than four years ago.

Klitschko was also around the same weight when he reclaimed an alphabet title, knocking out Chris Byrd in their April '06 rematch to begin a championship reign that has now lasted 7 1/2 years.

Povetkin arrived at a fit-and-ready 225.3 lb, his lightest weight in more than two years.

The championship affair will air live locally on Russia TV 1, as well as RTL in Germany, HBO in the United States and Boxnation in the United Kingdom.

Other weights:
Mateusz Masternak (30-0, 22 KOs) 197.75 vs. Grigory Drozd (36-1, 25 KOs) 198.9
12 rounds (EBU cruiserweight championship)
Ruslan Chagaev (31-2-1, 20 KOs) 250 vs. Jovo Pudar (30-3, 17 KOs) 227 - 12 rounds
Rakhim Chakhkiev (16-1, 12 KOs) 200 vs. Giulian Ilie (20-6-2, 6 KOs) 200.2 - 10 rounds
Fedor Chudinov (7-0, 6 KOs) 155.5 vs. Daniel Wanyonyi (18-5-2, 15 KOs) 157.6 - 8 rounds

Povetkin looks like a guy who's in good shape. He doesn't look like a guy who's got a shot at the world heavyweight title tomorrow night.

[QUOTE=The Gambler1981]Looking forward to it no doubt, I am skeptical of Povetkin's chances but hopefully he proves that wrong as this is the biggest heavyweight fight in a couple years. I don't have money on this fight so I don't mind being proven wrong lol[/QUOTE] It's the first real challen...

[QUOTE=crold1]He always looks like that. Just isn't cut. He's not loose and clearly put in work. Wlad is light for him. Trained for some extra zip it appears. Psyched for this scrap.[/QUOTE] Looking forward to it no doubt, I am skeptical of Povetkin's chances but hopefully he proves that wrong...

[QUOTE=The Gambler1981]Wlad looks spectacular, Povetkin looks like Povetkin but if he is coming in lighter than normal he is probably in as good a shape he can be in. Now that does't win fights but looking at those pictures and the weights it doesn't make me reconsider my position that Wlad wi...

[QUOTE=Cutthroat]I'm surprised he weighs so little at his height/build he must have a very small frame or something. Most NBA/NFL players with his height and build push 260-300 on average.[/QUOTE] I respectfully disagree. I do not know of many or any ball players that are 6'5" and 240-250lb.
