Sauerland: Unlike Klitschko - Povetkin, Helenius Go Heavy

By Ruslan Chikov

Promoter Wilfried Sauerland of Sauerland Event, praised two of his prized heavyweights, WBA "regular" champion Alexander Povetkin and undefeated Robert Helenius. This Saturday in Helsinki, Finland, Helenius will face Dereck Chisora for the vacant European title and Povetkin will make the first defense of his title against Cedric Boswell. Sauerland says the Klitschko brothers, Wladimir and Vitali, are busy picking on cruiserweights - while Helenius and Povetkin are fighting true heavyweight.

"Everyone says, 'Klitschko! Klitschko!'... But they are constantly fighting with boxers who are cruiserweights, while this Saturday we'll see a real heavyweight battle. Why didn't Klitschko want to fight Boswell? Why did they avoid him? This question answers itself. And do not forget that Povetkin only has twenty-two professional boxing fights, and Robert has sixteen. Klitschko had his first serious opponent after thirty fights," Sauerland told Alexander Pavlov.

I thought Haye was #3 at Heavyweight and Adamek was also top 10 ...

As far as I know, Povetkin withdrew from fighting Wladimir, while Helenius definitely will get a shot should he continue his form. Sounds like Sauerland babble.
