World heavyweight champion Alexander Povetkin (31-1, 23 KOs) will be fighting this Saturday night on July 1 against fringe contender Andriy Rudenko (31-2, 19 KOs) in a 12 round fight for the vacant WBO International title at the Luzhniki in Moscow, Russia. Rudenko is rated #11 WBO, #13 IBF. This is a big step down for Povetkin from his previous fight against Johann Duhaupas, who would likely make easy work of a small heavyweight like the 6-foot Rudenko.
A victory for Povetkin will move him up the World Boxing Organization’s top 15 rankings. Just how far it will push Povetkin up the rankings is the big question. He might need to achieve a No. 1 ranking for him to get a title shot, because it’s unlikely that he’ll be given a title shot without becoming the mandatory challenger to WBO champion Joseph Parker.
