4 Nov 2015 - W TKO R11 v Mariusz Wach
Russian Heavyweight banger Alexander Povetkin has an impressive 30-1 (22 KO) record.
A former WBA Heavyweight Champion, the 'Russian Vityaz' is hoping for another crack at World honours in early 2016 after victory over Mariscuz Wach in November 2015 cleared the path for a shot at Deontay Wilder's WBC World Heavyweight Title.
With just the one blemish, a conclusive defeat to Heavyweight king Wladimir Klitschko in October 2013, Povetkin remains one of the most feared men at the weight.
Since the defeat to Wlad, Povetkin has looked somewhat rejuvenated with four stand out victories on the spin.
Eye catching KO's against Manuel Charr, Carlos Takam and Mike Perez have firmly put Povetkin's name in the World mix.
Now in his 10th year as a professional, some say Povetkin has looked as good as ever.
