Povetkin is diferent story, he is good prospect and his manager Saurland belive on him, also he have suport from Russian state. He is doing good job fighting with old guys Donald, Bostice and the others. He dont need to fight Bidenko, why to risk , he is doing well and preapers for big battles and big names, i think that he will fight like this till his 20 bout after will attempt world champion belt.
Virchis for sure is much better known in the Ukraine than Bidenko.
Virchis is the reigning european title holder,and Virchis has fought quite often on native soil.Of couse he isnt as popular as the Klitschko brothers,but he is quite known among Ukranian sport fans.
Anyway! It doesnt really matter whether he is know in his native Ukraine or not! Povetkin wont fight him anyway!
Bidenko is totally unknown outside the circle of us hardcore fans.Besides Povetkin would win either by late stoppage or by point decision against Bidenko.There are better opponents out there for Povetkin.Well,better known opponents.Lets put it this way!
