Povetkin vs. Wawrzyk Looms For May 17th Showdown

By Ruslan Chikov

WBA "regular" heavyweight champion Alexander Povetkin (25-0, 17 KOs) many very weill defend his title against undefeated 6'5 Andrzej Wawrzyk (27-0, 13 KOs) of Poland on May 17th in Moscow, according to the fighter's manager Vladimir Hryunov. The event is headlined by a duel between WBA cruiserweight champion Denis Lebedev and challenger Guillermo Jones. Hryunov is waiting to get approval from the WBA, who ordered Povetkin to face unified champion Wladimir Klitschko in a mandatory fight by the end of August.

'We are working on this fight, but it is too early to consider it a finalized issue. A number of conditions have to be met. We need the consent of the WBA to take this fight before the clash with Wladimir Klitschko. In this matter, the WBA is talking with Povetkin's promoter Sauerland Event. According to the decree of the WBA, Wladimir and Alexander have to fight no later than August 31. Therefore, the earliest possible time to make a fight for Povetkin is in May," Hryunov said.

Wladimir will defend his title, on May 4th, against Francesco Pianeta.

[QUOTE=Ravens Fan;13225800]Why would any Klitschko fan criticize Haye for choosing a certain opponent and than praise Pusvetkin for picking the same one? I would believe that most would have the same opinion about both of them choosing this clown. Or…
