Povetkin & Stiverne Weigh In
Alexander Povetkin (30-1) and Bermane Stiverne (26-2-1) will step into the ring on Saturday in Povetkin’s home country of Russia. The bout will be contested for the interim WBC heavyweight title, meaning one of the two will earn a shot at top heavyweight Deontay Wilder.
