The promoter stated that the parties have almost agreed on the match.

The ironic twist of absolute world champion in the heavyweight Alexander Usik, Eddie Hearn, announced that the next rival will be the Russian heavyweight Alexander Povetkin. It is reported RingPolska.

“Negotiations are still ongoing, but we’re almost there. I think the fight will take place. To admit still can’t believe that the Barbel decided to debut in hevewae immediately at such a high level.

Povetkin is very good and very dangerous, he proved it in the fight with Anthony Joshua. My optimism? It’s simple: they both want to meet in person and fight. Therefore, I believe that the fans can RUB their hands with glee”.

We will remind, on the eve of the promoter of Russian heavyweight Alexander Povetkin confirmed the likelihood of the organization of the fight with the Mustache.

Recently a co-promoter of Ukrainian Eddie Hearn announced that the fight with Povetkin Mustache is scheduled for may 18 in Chicago.
