Russian heavyweight Alexander Povetkin said that his potential rival, American deonteya Wilder is still too early to put on a par with Ukrainian Vladimir Klitschko.
“Wilder – boxer strong, serious, with a good kick. Very serious, otherwise he wouldn’t be the world champion. He’s tall and strong guy.
Can it be put on a par with Wladimir Klitschko? Wladimir Klitschko is a legend. 11 years he defended his belt. If this young man will pass this way, then it can be put on this level. While I believe that Wladimir Klitschko is number one”, – said Alexander Povetkin.
Note that in October 2013 Vladimir Klitschko in a 12-round fight by unanimous decision defeated Alexander Povetkin on points and defended the title of world champion WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO.
