Sauerland: Povetkin, Huck Will Fight Again at Some Point

By Alexander Pavlov

Kalle Sauerland, promoter for WBA "regular" heavyweight champion Alexander Povetkin (24-0, 16K)s), and WBO cruiserweight king Marco Huck (34-2, 25KOs), believes the two fighters will face each other in a rematch at some point in the future. Last month in Stuttgart, Huck shocked a lot of people with his impressive performance and ability to hurt Povetkin in their contest. Povetkin, who appeared to be exhausted at the end, was lucky to escape with a majority decision victory.

At the moment, both boxers have mandatory obligations at their respective weights.

"A Huck vs Povetkin rematch would be super-fight. We are not afraid to match our best boxers against each other. I think Huck surprised the audience with his capabilities. But, it's a little too early to discuss [a rematch]. [Huck] has to fight Ola Afolabi, and Povetkin has a fight with Hasim Rahman, which I believe will also be a difficult fight. I think that sooner or later, Povetkin and Huck could meet again," Sauerland said.

[QUOTE=Superflo777;11859210]You seriously want Povetkin to face a K2 after his last miserable performance? IMO, a rematch would be great, give Huck another chance and let Povetkin show up in shape and get back respect. Get a good referee who won't…

[QUOTE=Hayehammer;11857513]I told you! Sauerland doesnt like dealing with K2 promotions! They wont put povetkin in with klitschkos! I have serious doubts also that they will let the winner of pulev vs dimitrenko fight one of the klitschkos! They have povetkin…

Translation: We dont want to lose Povetkins "0" as its the only thing that we bring to the table that can get more money from a Klitschko, so once we feed Povetkin to Wlad or Vitali then we'll do a…
