In just two days, Alexander Povetkin will be stepping through the ropes for the biggest fight of his career. The unbeaten heavyweight hopeful, who has won all 13 of his professional fights (10 KOs), will battle out an IBF eliminator with former champion Chris Byrd. "I have been waiting for this chance for a long time," he said. "I will make the most of it.."
The 28-year-old has been a huge hit not only in his home country Russia but also in Germany. He most recently did a photo shoot with star photographer Christian Barz. "It was very interesting and a lot of fun," Povetkin stated.
