Promoter: Wach is Perfect To Prepare Povetkin For Wilder

By Luke Furman

World of Boxing CEO Andrei Ryabsinki sees Polish giant Mariusz Wach (31-1, 17 KOs) as the perfect opponent to prepare Alexander Povetkin (29-1, 21 KOs) for his mandatory shot at WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder (34-0, 33KOs). Povetkin-Wach is scheduled for November 4 in Kazan.

To get ready for Wilder, Ryanbinski says Povetkin need a tall, strong opponent and one who is very durable. Povetkin has been blasting out the competition rather easily these days and Wach has never been stopped.

The Pole's only defeat came at the hands of the current kingpin of the heavyweight division, Wladimir Klitschko. Wach withstood some serious punches in that contest to go the entire twelve round distance.

"Right now Alexander needs a tall, big and heavy opponent. Wilder is no longer a joke. Wach has his advantages and disadvantages. He is not that fast, but he is a big and physically strong guy. He also fought Wladimir Klitschko for the full twelve rounds. For Alexander it will be so good foundation and preparation for Wilder," Ryabinski said.

[QUOTE=OctoberRed;15989484]Maybe it's just me but I could see an upset here[/QUOTE] Wach is actually a good boxer who wouldn't be really troubled by any but the top 15 really. He's not especially quick or skilled but he is technically much…

Each is no class act. Just a big, ugly boxer that should cause no trouble to povetkin. Let's hope they do the testing on him because he love the juice.
