Alexander Povetkin: I Would Like To Fight Tyson Fury

By Ruslan Chikov

WBA "regular" world heavyweight champion Alexander Povetkin (23-0, 16 KOs) has a lot of challengers lining up to face him. Within an hour after knocking out Cedric Boswell on Saturday night in Helsinki, Povetkin was challenged by popular WBO cruiserweight champion Marco Huck (34-1, 25 KOs). Povetkin's next fight is likely against the WBA's mandatory contender, 39-year-old former two-time champion Hasim Rahman (50-7-2, 41 KOs).

One possible opponent for the near future that Povetkin mentioned to Alexander Pavlov, is British/Commonwealth champion Tyson Fury (17-0, 12KOs)

[In the future I want a fight] with Tyson Fury from the UK. It would be the kind of fight that I would take before a clash with [Wladimir] Klitschko," Povetkin said.

This is actually a much closer fight than many people think it is. Fury's had several good performances this year against some solid opponents and he's pretty dedicated now than in previous years. Against Povektin, Fury has the much longer…

[QUOTE=Ravens Fan;11520347]Actually Trevor Berbick was murdered back in 2006. And Rahman may be old and past his prime but, at this point, his power alone is more than anything Fury has to offer. And I am sure this is only…
