Alexander Povetkin TKO3 Andrzej Wawrzyk... In Moscow, Alexander Povetkin had an easy time with Andrzej Wawrzyk, knocking his Polish challenger down three times in three rounds for a technical knockout victory. Warczyk, a smallish heavyweight who had never been beaten before, was bleeding from the nose at the time of the stoppage. With the win, Povetkin (26-0) retains his WBA regular heavyweight title and is now firmly in line for a huge fight vs Wladimir Klitschko who, among other titles, holds the WBA super championship. Now 27-1, Wawrzyk's best previous wins were over Denis Bakhtov and ex-U.S. Olympian Devin Vargas. video of fight: right here.
