Povetkin: “I Always fail the dope before the fight”

Поветкин: "Всегда проваливаю допинг перед боем"

Russian Alexander Povetkin (31-1, 23 KO’s) shared his impressions about the battle against Joanna Doopa.

“I want to thank everyone for their support. I apologize that did not get a fight with Stiverne. You know, some of them recent tradition, always before the battle, they find a doping control. Always fail the doping. I hope you will understand and everything will be fair. Again thank you all who are sick, who cares. While we are together – we are strong. We are invincible. Russian people are great.

As for changing the enemy, I am very worried because of what happened. Doopa very strong and powerful boxer. Seen almost vse his fight with Wilder. Strong and does not yield Stiverne.

Stern came raw, unprepared. Hard to say, but really wanted the fight with him. Sorry again that it happened, I hope, will understand and justice will prevail,” concluded Povetkin.

We will remind, it became known today that the fight Povetkin and Stiverne will not take place because of the positive doping test of the Russian. However, Alexander quickly found a new rival – Joanna Duoba, which he harshly knocked out in the 6th round.
