WBA ORDERS WLADIMIR KLITSCHKO-ALEXANDER POVETKIN

Press Release: The WBA has instructed Klitschko Management Group and Sauerland Event, promoters of WBA super champion Wladimir Klitschko and WBA regular champion Alexander Povetkin respectively, to negotiate a heavyweight championship fight between the two boxers. Prior to the 2011 fight between Wladimir Klitschko and David Haye, the WBA ruled that the winner would have to face the winner of Povetkin vs. Ruslan Chagaev within 18 months. Povetkin defeated Chagaev on August 27, 2011, so Klitschko vs. Povetkin should, according to the WBA, take place before February 26, 2013. On behalf of Povetkin, Kalle Sauerland said, “We are very excited that Povetkin will be Wladimir Klitschko's next opponent. We consider  Klitschko to be a great champion but we also consider Povetkin to be a very serious challenger. A fight between two Olympic champions is always something special and one that will turn out to be a real treat for boxing fans all over the world.” Chris Meyer, Sauerland's Managing Director, added: “We have a four-week period to negotiate terms on the fight and will be in contact with the Klitschko management later on today. We worked together for many fights as co-promoters of the Klitschkos. Therefore I am convinced that we will have a professional dialogue. However, if we should not be able to reach a voluntary agreement we are prepared to enter a purse bid.”
