Default If Povetkin wins against Rahman, will he have to fight Wlad this year?

Who knows the WBA regular/superchamp regulations. Is there any obligation for the regular champ to face the superchamp at some point? Or can they co-exist indefinitely without facing eachother?

I remember somebody mentioning the WBA has an 18 month limit for the regular champ to defend against the superchamp. Can anyone comfirm?

Freaking mess with the WBA.

IF he wins, or WHEN he wins?

They make up the rules as they go along.

Povetkin's promoters would probably just wait til Wlad retires and then say "aw shucks, we knew Alex would win, but now Wlad ran off and retired we'd never get a chance to face him".

you would think at some time Povetkin would WANT to fight Wlad....

At least to cash out.

Vitali should have made Povetkin an offer he couldn't refuse for his last fight.

Povetkin wont fight either Klitschko and not because he doesn't want to, there are a lot of politicts involved in this.
