Povetkin Says Camp Was Great, He Hit it Off With Zimin

By Alexander Pavlov

There were not problems in training camp, says WBA "regular" heavyweight champion Alexander Povetkin (23-0, 16KOs). The Russian champion was being trained by Teddy Atlas for the last couple of fights. Prior to the start of his recent camp, the two sides had a falling out and Russian trainer Alexander Zimin prepared Povetkin on short notice. On Saturday night in Stuttgart, Povetkin defends the title against WBO cruiserweight king Marco Huck (34-1, 25KOs).

"I feel great. I'm in good shape. Everything is good. We are ready for an interesting fight. With Alexander Zimin, we quickly found a common language. There were four sparring partners in our training camp. We held sparring sesssions which lasted as many as twelve rounds [with the fighters in camp]," Povetkin said.

That dumb a$$ Huck doesn't know what is going to hit him. Povetkin will maul him down to size and knock his empty head off. It'll give him the necessary humility.

Now that he has a capable trainer, Povetkin will be able to do better against the best in his division (except for the K brothers). :fing02:
