Alexander Povetkin To Hold Presser

Tommorrow on May 1th, the team of heavyweight contender and IBF mandatory Alexander will hold a press conference in MOscow. They are going to give out information regarding how negotiations are going with the current IBF, WBO, IBO, and Ring heavyweight champion Wladimir "Steelhammer" Klitschko. The are also going to talk about their request to have Wladimir go through Olympic style drug testing.

Christian Meyer, the managing director of Sauerland Event, Povetkin's manager Wladimir Hryunow, Victor Ageev who is the president of the Russian Boxing Federation, as well as Grigoriy Rodchenkov who is the director of the Anti-doping Center will be at the presser. Rodchenkov is a expert of chemical science and will offer his solution to the doping control issue before a potential Klitschko vs Povetkin matchup.

Povetkin's trainer Teddy Atlas had the following to say about the Klitschko's:

“They choose the most convenient opponents and shape situations in their favor. The only way to have control over some issues is to have this fight in Russia”

Wow talk about crap. Part of this press conference is about basically saying that they believe the Klitschko's (or at least Wladimir) are "doping" before their fights. This is a pretty strong allegation, and I will be interested in how Wladimir and the Klitschko's respond after this press conference. And Teddy Atlas is an idiot. There's not much more to say about him.
