Klitschko fight set

Wladmir Klitschko will defend his multiple heavyweight titles against mandatory challenger Alexander Povetkin in a highly anticipated showdown on Oct. 5 in Moscow. Klitschko holds the IBF and IBO belts and is also the WBO and WBA “super champion.” Povetkin, 33, is WBA’s “regular champion.” Klitschko’s older brother Vitali is the WBC champion. The Ukraine-born brothers rarely fight outside Germany, their base. “I’ve never boxed in Moscow and I’m looking forward to many Ukrainians and Russians who will come to the arena and create a special atmosphere,” Klitschko said. –AP
