Current News On Alexander Povetkin

This is a video from Russia Today that talks about The International Boxing Federation's (IBF) #1 Heavyweight Alexander Povetkin getting ready for his mandatory shot at Wladimir Klitschko's title this fall and his tune-up fight against Taurus 'The Bull' Sykes from New York on July 19.

Personally I'm not sure what will happen if a couple different scenarios occur that are unexpected. What if Sykes defeats Povetkin? Will this make Sykes the #1 challenger for Wladimir's belt or will the IBF not rank Sykes as high as Povetkin was and call in the #2 on their current list?

Also, what if Klitschko loses by some freak occurrence against Thompson on July 12th? Technically if Povetkin wins against Sykes he'd still be the IBF #1 mandatory and Thompson would have the belts, but maybe Wladimir has a rematch clause coming into this fight with Thompson. In that case Povetkin would have to wait further until the rematch between Thompson & Wladimir Klitschko. If Alex has to wait would Thompson be stripped of the IBF belt, and if he is stripped who would Alexander face for the IBF belt???
