Chagaev: Hepatitis Rumor Won't Stop The Povetkin Bout

By Ruslan Chikov

Former world heavyweight champion Ruslan Chagaev doesn't expect a potential battle with Alexander Povetkin to fall though because of an ongoing rumor that the Uzbek fighter's health is suffering from Hepatitis B. The two boxer's could meet on August 27 in Germany for the WBA's "regular" heavyweight title. Wladimir Klitschko will become the WBA's "super champion" after winning a recent decision over David haye to unify the WBA/WBO/IBO/IBF titles.

"This topic has been so beaten up that explaining it again is just useless. You saw how I work in training. If I were really sick, I couldn't run or do one-third of that work. This topic has been discussed already for three or four years," Chagaev told Alexander Pavlov.

"And if I was sick with Hepatitis, the disease would somehow reflect on my body and others. When there was talk about a fight with David Haye and the British federation requested tests, my whole family - myself, my wife and children - donated blood. And they are all okay. Yes, the antigen is in my blood, but I can not infect anyone."

If Povetkin will not face Chagaev because of Hepatitis, he's a *****! Chagaev is a true fighter. As Klitschkos are. They showed t on the T-Shirts "Fit & geimpft"!
