Povetkin To Be Trained By Kirpa, Chisora Ruled Out

By Luke Furman

According to Russian promoter Andrei Ryabinsky, Olympic gold medal winner Alexander Povetkin (26-1, 18KOs) will be trained by former fighter Ivan Kirpa, who retired in 2009 with a 24-1 record with 15 of those wins by knockout. The former WBA 'regular' champion was last seen in action in October of last year, when he lost a twelve round unanimous decision to unified champion Wladimir Klitschko. Ryabinsky also ruled out a potential fight with EBU champion Dereck Chisora, at least in Povetkin's next fight.

Strangely enough, David Haye said a few days ago that Chisora-Povetkin is on. Shows you can't trust anything Haye says! Looks like we'll see Chisora vs. Fury this summer.

[QUOTE=yoz;14272550]Apparently Povetkin vs. Pulev is in play.[/QUOTE] Would be great but i dont think it will happen. Pulev is already Wlads next mandatory. He would make good money in russia, thats for sure...and he would beat Povetkin IMO.

I hoped he would fight Chisora damn it! I wonder what kind of bum he will face instead.

Povetkin has a lot left in him.
