The letter stated that the winner of the bout would be declared as Super Champion and has to face the winner out of Ruslan Chagaev vs. Alexander Povetkin within in a time period of 18 months after the fight which took place on August 27, 2011. Klitschko vs. Povetkin is scheduled to take place before February 26, 2013.

Povetkin’s promoter Kalle Sauerland said:

“We are very excited that Povetkin will be Wladimir Klitschko’s next opponent. We consider Wladimir Klitschko to be a great champion but we also consider Alexander Povetkin to be a very serious challenger. A fight between two Olympic Heavyweight 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, Managing Director of Sauerland Event, 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.”

  1. So here we are — will Povetkin drop the (fake) WBA strap and keep his “0,” or go fight the big guy and get honorably clocked?

  2. I want to say this and I hope Vlat is reading it. This guy is the best Champ this division has ever known. He is the consummated professorial and totally out classes everyone he has ever fought, and bring a sense of maturity and class to the entire division. This man will always get the shaft from american media. I, as an american boxing FAN! love this man and will always root for him and even after his wonderfully entertaining career is over. I will hold this guy above the rest. In a division of rapist, and whore mongers and thefts and drug addicts. This man is the class of the entire fight game. Vladimir I for one am your biggest fan.
