Why accommodate Povetkin's wishes if he's the one who ran twice. After Wlad paid press conferences and training camps out of his own pocket. I wouldn't accommodate jackshit for Povetkin. If he's serious about fighting then he will fight no matter if the date is in February or 3 months later.
As far as Bönte is concerned. Obviously he is a business guy and he also is the guy who is in talks with RTL as far as I know. RTL want those boxers they can sell (They marketed Wach very well and got a very high viewership for the fight, even though Wach was a C class opponent).
Pulev may be a good fighter but RTL doesn't care as much about that as about marketability.
