Well, Wawrczyk ist a lot better and younger than Oquendo. Even so, Povetkin should defend vs. Haye or Boytsov.

The Roar

I don’t think there’s ever been a more cowardly bully boy “champion” than Povetkin. He wants to retire with his “0” and claim he was a world champion. Plenty of dumb Russians will believe him as well. He’ll keep fighting nobodies and duck Wlad like his life depends on it.

JE- your right on dude. I like povetkin but his matchmaking looks as bad or worse than floyds. So many better bouts for him to make EVEN A KLITSCHKO BOUT FOR CRYING OUT LOUD. And povetkin is doing this garbage. It sickens me. But I like povetkin

He must think he can get more money for the undefeated fighter but if he signed that’s breach of contract. Can’t see Povetkin losing to Fres.

Posted April 7, 2013 8:25 am 


Povetkin continues to avoid a real title shot while defending his fake belt against opposition that is below heavyweight title level. It’s embarrassing.

“unheralded, untested and completely unknown Andrzej Wawrzyk (27-0, 13KOs).”

Uh, no. I know about him, so he’s not completely unknown. He’s ranked higher in BoxRec than Oquendo so he’s not unheralded. Untested? That’s pretty much true.

I really don’t care if Pov gives an undefeated fighter a chance. What’s wrong with two undefeated fighters fighting? Oquendo can have the winner.

Ever since huck gave povetkin a run for his money its been bullcrap fights. The wba is really to blame. Perpetuating this crap. As I say below boxing as a sport needs overhauled. We need a second ref ringside mic’ed up to the ring ref who wath all angles of a fight and tries to ensure proper calls like fouls and headbutts and cuts. How many low blows go uncalled. How many fouls and cuts. Even tv networks the broadcast the fiht should have people focusing on that. Lastly, the sanctioning bodies need to force the action of the contenders. Top 10 should be mandatoried against eachother or loose rank. Also, the judges need cleaned up. Boxing seems less of a sport and more corruption bullcrap

According to what Oquendo says , Povetkin’s word is just as meaningless
as his ” world championship ” title !

We need more posts by Tommy Boy. His dementia supplements the comic relief of Hitz’s press release.

This Hitz is LOL. Two months ago he claimed to be in negotiations with Wlad. Then Wlad said they never had such talks. Why ESB post his press releases that they know are probably false is beyond me.

Povetkin would have little trouble knocking Fres Oquendo out… But AP should be fighting Pulev, Haye, or Fury. They would all beat him without even trying. Even Malik Scott, Bryant Jennings, or Mariuze Wach might beat him. He’s a cheese champion who simply refuses to fight anyone dangerous.

Oquendo is a fighter past his best with a delluded manager named Tom Tatas. Any manager named after a pair of titties is probably a joke. Povetkin beats and him and the undefeated Russian whose name I cannot pronounce.

Posted April 6, 2013 1:38 pm 


He’s been robbed on a number of bouts. Let him fight for the minor league title.

Posted April 6, 2013 1:21 pm 


He should defend against Travis “Ironman” Fulton. Might as well.

Posted April 6, 2013 1:08 pm 


Even losing Fres will make it fun. he has good movement and has fast hands with decent power. Fres should have been a champ when he got robbed by chris byrd.

Posted April 6, 2013 10:52 am 


povetkin is weak should be fighting denis boytsov, tomasz adamek, bryant jennings, magomed or fury, malik scott

Posted April 6, 2013 10:51 am 


fres is a bum 7 losses not best american at all not top 25 won 3 fights vs bums how would he get title shot

Posted April 6, 2013 10:45 am 


Povetkin’s people realize that there fighter cannot look good against Oquendo. In fact, Povetkin might even lose. Povetkin is a face-first swarmer, a guy who can be hit. He’s known to miss punches and to struggle against certain kinds of guys. I think this one goes 12 rounds, Povetkin clearly gets the worst of it, and the judges rob Oquendo.

Oquendo = bum

Posted April 6, 2013 8:58 am 


That being said Fres is 40 years old…They’re just trying to get a little value before he quits.

Posted April 6, 2013 8:05 am 


LMAO scared of Oquendo ?…Better quit boxing then :)

jimmy the snake eater

povetkin would easily beat fres oquendo who lost to old ass evender holyfield and got knocked out by feather fisted john ruiz

Posted April 6, 2013 7:13 am 


God dammit. Do you remember Povetkin camps reaction when Wladimir Klischko considered Fres as potential opponent for the next fight? It was like “Klitschko will fight another non-hopper instead really treaty Sasha Povetkin”. And now… My God, that Povetkin guy and his team are just absurdity.

This article might be bias…but if Povetkin got off his ass and fought some top fighters he wouldt be slamed like this.They couldnt hold stuff like this against him,he made it easy for the media with his ducking and cherry-picking.

Posted April 5, 2013 11:00 pm 


fres has beaten three nobodies in the past five fights, lost the other two to washed up boxers. how does that rate him for a title shot? his promoter wrote this article. he claimed to have lined up a shot at wlad not long ago too. hitz promotions is obviously full of crap.

Fres Oquendo – Clearly beat Hyped Chris Byrd and was Robbed everyone saw that robbery.. Fres has faced top opposition for a long time..

Posted April 5, 2013 9:43 pm 


fres is a never was. anyone decent easily beats him.

I see dummies still come here huh? It is no surprise that boxing is pretty much a thing of the past with moron fans like the ones who comment here. I have seldom seen anybody say positive things about anything. Just LOSERS who come to hate about anyone and everyone. Anonymous, Smoking Fat Bert Cooper who’s ass was beaten senseless by Fres, Harry Ballsitch, are the 3 top LOSERS thus far

Fres can take him and Povetkin knows it. He got a gift against Huck, that’s made him more uncertain of his ablity. Teddy Atlas messed things up for him, he should have fought Waldimar when he the chance and taken big money, hell never make that kind of money again

Posted April 5, 2013 8:08 pm 


Just fight Bhop and get it over with. Everyone knows that the Klits sister are the champions.

Povetkin is a paper champion. The true WBA Champion is Wladimir Klitschko. Povetkin avoids him like the plague.

Posted April 5, 2013 5:41 pm 


EVERYONE knows Povs “title” is a joke. And if he is simply not up to defending against Fres, all due respect to him, who isn’t really a top 30 fighter, then Pov is irrelevent. And will remain so until he takes on a genuine opponent with a real desire to win and then face a Kbro. Until then he is about as appealing as fishpaste!

Posted April 5, 2013 5:16 pm 


If you look at Fres’s record, anytime he fights anyone that you may have heard of he tends to lose so I doubt Povetkin is concerned about losing to Fres, it’ll be his managers making a business move, that’s all.

Posted April 5, 2013 5:14 pm 


I agree Paul, the WBA’s decision to have 2 world titles in the same weight class is absolutely PATHETIC ! They deserve to be ridiculed for that move. Whoever came up with that and those that approved it should be fired.

Posted April 5, 2013 4:59 pm 


WBA,s fault for creating a stupid title…take it away and make povetkin a contender.

Posted April 5, 2013 4:34 pm 

Robert A.

Can’t really blame Team Povetkin for having second thoughts and wanting to weasle out of this fight. As we all witnessed vs the cruiserweight Marco Huck, Povetkin is no great shakes as a fighter and Oquendo would pose a serious threat to take the paper title from the highly overrated Russian doughboy should this match ever happen.

I highly doubt anyone is afraid of Fres….wishful thinking
