Team Sauerland hunting Klitschko

Top European boxing promoters Sauerland are hunting down Wladimir Klitschko to defend against 1 of their top 3 heavyweights after Robert Helenius 18-0, 11 KO’s and Kubrat Pulev 17-0, 9 KO’s. Both contenders currently hold the number one spot in their respective rankings.

The current WBO and IBF Champion is Wladimir Klitschko. The Ukrainian also holds the WBA (World Boxing Association) Super Champion status. The regular WBA Champion is Alexander Povetkin (25-0, 17 Kos), who is signed to Team Sauerland just like Helenius and Pulev. “The hunt for Wladimir Klitschko is on. First, he will have to face mandatory challenger Alexander Povetkin. Once that fight has happened, we will see if Klitschko is still the champion,” a confident Kalle Sauerland told DAILY SPORT. “We already have one heavyweight world champion in Povetkin. With Robert Helenius and Kubrat Pulev we have two more fighters who capable of taking the belts of Klitschko. Added to that, we also have 24-year-old heavyweight hopeful Edmund Gerber in our ranks. But before we can start thinking of anything else, Klitschko has to face Povetkin.”
