Alexander Povetkin was impressive in his last fight against Andrzej Wawrzyk, although Andrzej hadn’t shown much in his career of him being a world beater. So the victory was expected, it’s just the manner of the victory that impressed most. Anyway, today he will be fighting the best in the division Wladimir Klitschko, which will be a massive step up from his previous opponent, so we’ll have to wait and see how he adjusts.
Alexander Povetkin earns the right to fight the no. 1 heavyweight Wladimir Klitschko.
This fight starts off with Wladimir Klitschko rushing to the centre of the ring and immediately stamping his authority on the fight, by hitting his opponent, maintaining distance and using the clinch to neutralise any attack from Alexander. So the onus will be on Alexander to see whether he can get around the defence of Wlad.
