Boxer Wladimir Klitschko has bemocked United Kingdom world heavyweight belt aspirers David Haye as well as Dereck Chisora as barking dogs before he collides with Alexander Povetkin on Saturday in Moscow.

Chisora and Haye, plus Haye’s future opposition Tyson Fury – all anticipated near the ringside in Olimpiyskiy Arena to see an encounter that Klitschko considers has the probability to be toughest of his career.

Wladimir swatted David in 2011’s July while his older brother Vitali out-pointed Dereck early previous year. The Ukrainian boxer thinks that the way of Alexander Povetkin fight build-up demonstrates that he is a cut above the United Kingdom pair.

While speaking to a leading news channel, Wladimir told that Povetkin is a very calm, respectful as well as a self-confident person. There is no argument like David did when he said all that crazy things before their battle, there is no spitting water or even slapping like Dereck Chisora did before he fought his brother. He added that ‘barking dogs’ never bite and Alexander is not a barking dog. He believes that he would deliver a good performance.

Wladimir heads into the match on the back of a 9 year, 18 fight winning run extending back to his shock 5th round closure to Lamon Brewster in 2004’s April in sin city Las Vegas.

When the eyes of the entire world was trained on the Light Middleweight fight between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Saul Alvarez at the MGM Grand Garden in Las Vegas, the most important fight of 2013 is well over there weeks away.

Come the 5th of October, the consensus Heavyweight Championship holder Wladimir Klitschko will be looking to prove himself yet again when he takes on the challenge of consensus number one contender and the dubious claimant for the title Alexander Povetkin in a stadium that was built originally for the summer Olympic Games in Moscow in 1980.

This fight will mark the 15th time the younger of the two Klitschko brothers will be putting the International Boxing Federation or the IBF and the International Boxing Organization or the IBO Heavyweight Championship, a title that he defeated Chris Byrd to win in 2006; the 11th straight defense of the World Boxing Organization or the WBO Heavyweight Championship which he won two years later as well as the fifth time he will be putting the World Boxing Association or the WBA Super Heavyweight Championship that he beat Englishman David Haye to win.

Povetkin will walk to the ring holding the regular WBA Heavyweight Championship and Wladimir Klitschko will be looking to relieve him of that title.

If one was to look beyond the huge amount of gold on the line, this fight could potentially be the most important Heavyweight fight in years and will mark a return for the division when it was the major player in world boxing. And Wladimir Klitschko will look to do his part in getting the division back on his feet after he and his brother Vitali, the World Boxing Council Heavyweight champion were blamed for ruining the division by their very poor choice of opponents over the years.

Heavyweight boxing king Wladimir Klitschko is in line to defend his title against Alexander Povetkin but that future of the match is in immense doubt over a row with dope testing ahead of the match. The 37 year old Ukrainian has been ordered by the World Boxing Association or the WBA to put his WBA Heavyweight Championship on the line as part of the WBA’s attempts to unify the regular and Super Heavyweight Championships.

The match is scheduled to go ahead on the 5th of October in Moscow, Russia. The younger of the two Klitschko brothers who have been dominating the Heavyweight boxing division for years now, was awarded the Super Heavyweight Championship by the WBA when he defeated the then champion David Haye unanimously to take his title and the vacancy of the regular champion was filled by Povetkin. The issue that threatens the match is very trivial, according to most boxing fans.

The Wladimir Klitschko wants the German National Anti Doping Agency to handle the testing of the blood and urine samples where as the Povetkin camp wants this to be done by their Russian counterparts, mainly because the fight will go down in the country. And with the disagreement over the arrangements raging, the manager of the Ukrainian has threatened that he will pull the plug on the fight, irrespective of the consequences.

And according to the Wladimir Klitschko camp, there are still a lot of gaps in the fight contract, and the issue with the dope testing is just one of those issues. Insiders of the Ukrainian’s camp have mentioned that at this moment, the chances of the fight going forward stand at 50-50 and if the issues are not resolved within the next one or so months, the future of the fight will be in real jeopardy.

Tyson Fury is just two fights away from landing the match of his dreams – a Heavyweight showdown against world champion Wladimir Klitschko. The English boxer, who has been nicknamed as The Manchester Gypsy is scheduled to make his debut in the fabled Madison Square Garden in new York, United States of America against Steve Cunningham on his own home turf and according to the promoter of the Englishman, if he wins that bout and another fight after that, he will be in line to face the big Ukrainian.

If Fury wins the match against Cunningham, he will come face to face against Kubrat Pulev, who is currently the number one contender and if he defeats him, Fury will land a fight against the International Boxing Federation or IBF, World Boxing Organization or WBO and World Boxing Association or WBA Heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko. And Fury is one man who has repeatedly campaigned for a fight against the hard hitting Ukrainian and his promoter believes these two wins are important to set up that dream fight.

Mick Hennessey, who promotes the 24 year old Englishman, stated that his fighter is in a two fight situation to crack a shot at Wladimir and then, the two parties must make the fight happen. Hennessey further mentioned that if the fight doesn’t happen, it will go to a purse bid and the one who bids the most will bag a fight against the Englishman.

He mentioned that they had spoken about the scenario with the representatives of Pulev and he also stated that in that case, a fight with Pulev might happen in the summer as well. But it must be stated that all the roads lead to a fight against the hard hitting Ukrainian Wladimir Klitschko, who is dream fight for any boxer.
