I didn't know that Atlas managed Kobozev. Wow, even worse than I thought. The only reason that some gutter trash like Atlas has such a prominent place in the boxing scene is because he fits right in with all the rest of them who are cut from the same cloth - the boxing mobsters, the media masters, the bankers, the politicians...

Povetkin states (in the scene of boxing) that now he´s ready for Klitschkos.

This is the third time, maybe the third time´s a charm and we´ll see Wlad vs Alexander

Klitschko can not fight Povetkin in the near future. Chambers is an OC (IBF) and Chagaev is also an OC in WBA, so they come first.
The possible fight of Povetkin vs Chagaev can not be an eliminator since Chag is already an OC and he deserves a title fight
So if there will be a Povetkin - Chagaev fight it will be for the regular/interim belt

That might be the case. Well, anyways it´s good to have Sasha back in real action (hopefully that is the situation).

Wouldn´t mind seeing Povetkin vs Chagaev

I stopped caring when he didn't fight Wlad. I was a big fan of his style and the way he didn't pad his record. Then all the sudden he lost his nerve.

The WBC has no problem making guys fight two eliminators in a row (e.g.Pavlik or Rubio) and the WBA clearly has the lowest ethical standards with all their super champ regular champ bullshit, not sanctioning Chagaev-Klychko, etc so i dont see that being a problem. I'd love to see Povetkin vs Chagaev. I still wish we got to see Ibragimov vs Chagaev back in 2007 before Ruslan got injured.

Yeah Ibragimov-Chagaev would have been a good fight. I´d favour Ruslan slightly, Chagaev-Povetkin would be a good fight too. At this point you´d have to favour Povetkin. I really liked Chagaev, good boxer and a nice guy.

I read that Team Klitschko is not interested in fighting Povetkin .
They say that "he had his chance twice"
Their priorities are Arreola , Fury, Chisora
And no rematch with Haye

Sasha is supposed to be facing Chagaev for the regular WBA title. They should announce this soon, I would expect. This makes sense consider their respective rankings and what else is either going to do. I like Sasha big in this one. Chagaev has looked shop worn. Having Wlad beat on his skull for nine rounds did not do him any favors.
