Povetkin has found a new adversary

Поветкину нашли нового противника

The situation around the fight Alexander Povetkin (30-1, 22 KO’s) is changing almost cosmic speed.

We will remind, early in the morning it became known that the fight between Alexander Povetkin and bermana Stiverne will not take place because of the failed Russian doping test. It has become a second time this year when fight knight broke just a few hours before the start of the match. Earlier, a similar situation happened in may, when also due to the positive doping test of his Povetkin fight with DevTeam Wilder did not take place.

It seems that the promoters of the Russian could not allow this to Faile, and decided to urgently find a new opponent for Povetkin. The organizers of the evening of Boxing in Yekaterinburg is to pay tribute, replacement Stiverne was chosen worthy. New rival Russians will be the Frenchman Yoan Doopa.

Previously, he was a contender for the world crown, but could not resist under the pressure of Deontay Wilder. But asset 35-year-old boxer are defeating Manuel charr, Robert Helenius ( TKO),

After the doping scandal the match will carry a rating in nature, and no belts at stake it will not stand. We add that the story looks quite odd, so as to prepare a replacement for Povetkin, and even to bring the opponent to Ekaterinburg in such record time without prior agreement seem unrealistic.

Thus, the main event of the evening of the 17th of December in Ekaterinburg still be held with the participation of Povetkin.
