The big news in the Heavyweight division right now is the $23.3 million that has been put up for unbeaten Alexander Povetkin to get in the ring with Wladimir Klitschko. But first he must overcome Andrzej Wawrzyk, not exactly the toughest test he will face. I cant help but feel this fight will be one to forget, as much as Wawrzyk has a chance to win a world title he is very much out of his depth here, and Povetkin will be doing everything in his power to prevent himself picking up an injury.
It has been confirmed that both Povetkin's and Klitchko's camps are looking to have the contest held at the back end of August or the first week of September. Either way both men will be looking to stay in shape as they are just a few months away from a big money earner. It will be the biggest payday of Povetkin's career and also the biggest chance he will have of standing on top of the Heavyweight division. I guess we will await the outcome of this Fridays fight first.
