Looks like Povetkin - Chagaev could be next for WBA regular title. Hope this fight will happen, Povetkin wins, than fight Klitschko-Haye winner.

It's pretty hard to recommend boxing as a sport when you have so-called contenders like Povetkin and Chagaev sitting on their asses throughout their primes.

I don't know what is going on. Povetkin did get injured, but then his team was negotiating with Haye for a May-June fight............. I dunno what Chag's excuse is...........maybe he doesn't want to fight again until its for a title.

Absolutely ridiculous that this should be for a title neither man has. The WBA has no credibility at all. None.

Otherwise it's a very interesting fight! The sort of fight I'd love to watch

Yes, sitting on their asses throughout their primes, something they'll look back on and regret. Still, a great match-up. I'll take Povetkin.

Chagaev is past his best and quite frankly did not live up to his potential. Povetkin will win this fight. And get gifted a title as well. Giving Teddy Atlas another Heavyweight champion. Ugh....

At least Povetkin knows his limitations, and is avoiding the real titleholders.

Its frustrating, but I guess you gotta respect his acknoledging his lack of ability to compete on the world champion level. At least, for now he don't seem to think he can handle a title shot.

Maybe in a year or so, or maybe once Vitali retires, Povetkin will suddenly become more confident.

Noone recognizes the regular champ. Its meaningless bullshit.

The winner of the Wlad Haye fight will be THE WBA man, period.

The regular champ nonsense should be ignored, cause it means nothing.

Agreed, Povetkin I think would win easy. The only downside is Atlas would think he's the best trainer is history...

Here is how i see it playing out:

Klitschko win, Chagaev win. Boring as **** fight for Klitschko as he does exactly what he did last time.

Klistchko win, Povetkin win. Fight won't happen.

Haye win, Chagaev win. Fight won't happen because Haye will ask for the fight to be held at MEN or O2 arena and Chagaev has better chance of passing for JJ from Good Times than passing a physical.

Haye win, Povetkin win. Now that would be a fight. But might not happen if Povetkin doesn't get in there before October.
