700k?

Hmm, I'd say that's a price worth considering actually if it'll get him the fight with Wladimir.

Plus Povetkin doesn't seem to be bothering about anything in particular these days. The guy's just come to an absolute dead stop in his career for over a year now.

Fightnews:

WBA heavyweight champon David Haye’s wish to fight IBF/WBO/IBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko next may prove to be an expensive proposition. Reportedly a number of 700,000 Euros ($935,000) has been mentioned as the step-aside fee Haye would have to pay IBF mandatory challenger Alexander Povetkin to make the fight with Wlad happen next.

I think you're bang on there TFFP. Adamek eats too many shots because he lacks head movement and his footwork generally takes him in straight lines. I think with Arreola's reach and power Adamek could be in trouble. I posted something about this in the betting thread a few weeks back. Couldn't believe Fatty was 7/4

This potential Haye Wlad fight is starting to sound expensive. 700K for Povetkin and a nice little earner for Valuev as well?

Haye will get beat here anyway so he should save his money and wait until he gets a shot at Wlad for free

Apparently povetkin won't fight klitschko unless he subjects to wada testing due to his contract or something weird.

Also from scene

Atlas has stated that Povetkin needs some more fights to work on aspects so this doesn't surprise me.

Will he remain mandatory as long as he keeps fighting other ranked fighters or will he somehow lose his spot if he doesn't take the fight within a certain time? Doesn't seem to be in any rush at all, as others have pointed out.

He's been mandatory for a long while, I know he broke ankle and that put him back a bit. I think Atlas coming in has slowed them down. Teddy knows there isn't a need to rush, Times on his side as long as he beats the best in and around top 10-15 and being with a good promotional team he will get the shot when he's ready. I think Teddy knows Wlad is at peak of his powers. Timing is everything in this sport.

Yeah I actually think they're playing it pretty smart but it's a slightly unusual situation (with them already being ranked #1)

Povetkin's nothing special, but Atlas has gone on record saying he needs time to work on making Povetkin more rounded. He's inexperienced still.

Yep Agreed. People knock Atlas but he's a smart customer and a good addition to his team. Sometimes i've sat watching fighters and said they need a few more fights before title crack and they've gone on to win without having there two learning fights i thought they needed. But as you say i think there playing it smart.

Haye could of just fought Vitali, but Vitali just decides to take on the guy who's ducking Audley right now....

7/4 is way too short.
