Fight Notes: 

Povetkin toughs out a decision over Chagaev in a fight in which he bossed the early rounds, let Chagaev gain the ascendancy in the middle rounds, and then--perhaps motivated by a pep talk from trainer Teddy Atlas invoking the spirit of his dead father--swept the championship rounds to win with room to spare. Because Wladimir Klitschko already held the IBF and WBO belts when he defeated WBA holder David Haye in July, the WBA elevated Klitschko to Super Champion, opening up their "regular" heavyweight title for Povetkin to snatch.

Good heavyweight match :)

Nick_Foxx's picture

It wasn't bad at all, and I still only gave it three stars. That's high for a heavyweight fight.

And Helenius getting yet another great win on the undercard :) Great power, but he still needs some work.

Nick_Foxx's picture

i'd like to see helenius in there with povetkin

Not gonna happen, as they are both with Sauerland.

My guess is that Povetkin - Holyfield and Helenius - Dimitrenko/Barrett(or a type like that s up next.

(Or another type like Barrett)*

Helenius - Dimitrenko could be interesting. Another interesting one could be Povetkin - Arreola.

But hey, now Helenius has KO´d three former champs(Brewster,Peter,Liakovich) They could of course continue that trend: Rahman, Briggs, JC Gomez, or.. Holyfield (Which I really dont hope they want to do)

Nick_Foxx's picture

Hasim Rahman sounds about right for Helenius's next "challenge." Then again, he's only had sixteen pro fights now, so maybe that's the right level.

Rahman is for some reason ranked third by the WBA now, so he could be Povetkins next opponent..

Dimitrenko - Helenius I guess would only happen if Helenius becomes mandatory for the EBU-title. Else I dont think Dimitrenko and his promoter would fancy that :P They already have Mormeck as mandatory (If Dimitrenko beats Sprott nexts month)

Oh my.. what about Helenius - McCall? Could Helenius be the man to put McCall down :P?

But.. I think a good next opponent for Helenius would be someone known, but not so dangerous. Welliver/Walker/Page/Sprott/King stuff.

Just read that Povetkin - Rahman have to be signed within the next 90 days..

Nick_Foxx's picture

That's a disgusting fight. By the way, we clearly need a boxing forum for discussions like this, I'll try to get Zoe to put one up.

Yeah, I agree with it all :)

This was a good technical heavyweight scrap, probably the last notable performance of Chagaev's career and Povetkin's second best win of his career (No.1 being 11th round TKO of Chris Byrd). Povetkin, like in most of his fights, worked as the aggressor, applying relentless pressure on his opponent, while Chagaev, mostly known for the bob-and-weave style, this time was mostly looking for opportunity to counter his opponent. Besides the tentative first round - both fighters have always been relatively slow starters as they like to take their time to study the opponent down - Povetkin won the first half of the fight handily, he did not give Chagaev much space to fire back, he set the pace as early as the second round, but because of such high-volume workrate he looked visibly tired by the middle rounds, Chagaev appeared to have found his range, successfully moving in-and-out a couple of times, he hurt Povetkin a few times with clubbing shots and was slowly returning back into the fight. Povetkin, however, while not in command, at no point looked lost or confused, he was able to successfully survive those rounds, and after restoring his energy he picked up his pace and took up right where he left off. Chagaev clearly needed a stoppage going into the championship rounds, he finished the fight strong and, in my eyes, won the last two rounds but it was not enough to secure the victory.
