Kornilov: Povetkin and Joshua can meet in September
Vadim Kornilov the manager of former heavyweight champion Alexander Povetkin told how the negotiations with Eddie Hearn the promoter of the WBA, WBO, IBF, IBO champion Anthony Joshua are proceeding. According to Kornilov, the parties plan to organize a fight in September.
"The meeting with Hearn was excellent. We are still in the process of negotiating to organize a fight between Joshua and Povetkin in September. I think that the place of the fight will be known by the end of the month. I think that Anthony is ready to fight any opponent, whether it's Wilder or Povetkin. The only question is whether Deontay is ready to do the same. But what I know for sure is that Povetkin's next fight will be the title fight. We are sure of this," Kornilov said.
