Povetkin promoter Andrey Ryabinsky told about the negotiations with the team Wilder.
“Sasha, of course, ready for the next day. Yes, there are some points that need to be done, but in General, Sanya very good Boxing, he got an explosive combination. He is very good began to enter into medium or close range, and well began to work in a clinch, which is very important. Remember the fight with Wladimir Klitschko, where there were a lot of clinches. You need to be able to behave in these clinches, to be able to relax at this time,” added the promoter.
“On the Wilder WBC Congress gave the opportunity to carry out one more fight. Does it mean that we need to conduct another interim fight? I don’t think so. I think that the next opponent has to be Wilder. Judging from the behavior of a team of American, they don’t really want this fight, but that’s okay – we’ll wait. Let Wilder will conduct a mid-term battle, but we will wait and we’ll negotiate. We have 90 percent that this fight will take place in America, and 10 in Russia. And I think that this fight will take place closer to summer of next year,” said Rabinsky.
Earlier, SPORTS bigmir)net reported that the WBC requires that the next opponent of Wilder was Russian Alexander Povetkin, but the Manager of Deontay said that Wilder is not going to stand in waiting for the fight with the Russian.
