Povetkin-Huck Contract is Sent To The WBA For Approval

By Ruslan Chikov

Manager Vladimir Hryunov has revealed that the World Boxing Association (WBA) is now in receipt of the bout agreement between the "regular" heavyweight champion of the WBA Alexander Povetkin, and WBO cruiserweight champ Marco Huck. The fight takes place on February 25th in Stuttgart, Germany.

"Today, we have sent over the signed contract for the fight with Povetkin and Hook in Stuttgart on February 25.  We hope to have the fight contract approved by the WBA. So maybe it's possible that we'll receive the good news about the fight," Hryunov told FE.

Povetkin's mandatory Hasim Rahman, and his prompter Greg Cohen, have been very angry with Povetkin decision to go forward with Huck. They refuse to step aside.

"Rahman's promoter Greg Cohen is very strange. Now I can't contact him. I tried to phone him for ten consecutive days to no avail," Hryunov said.

[QUOTE=Freedom.;11601254]Rahman should not be the WBA mandatory, but why in the world is Povetkin avoiding him?[/QUOTE] Oh well, Povetkin is not really WBA "champion" either, Wladimir is. So it's all kind of farcical. But no doubt a fight with Huck…
