Promoter Eddie Hearn talked about when Russian heavyweight Alexander Povetkin will hold his next fight. His words are brought by the Boxing News 24.

The 39-year-old Russian will perform on July 12. Povetkin's rival is still unknown. The fight with the participation of the Russian heavyweight will be held in the undercard of the fight with the participation of Amir Khan.

In February, it was reported that Povetkin is counting on a fight against the Ukrainian Alexander Usik. Already in June, the Ukrainian boxer noted that he did not want to fight with the Russians, since his fight could cause the emergence of "political dirt".

The last time Povetkin entered the ring in September 2018. Russo lost to British Anthony Joshua. Joshua defended his World Championship titles from the World Boxing Association (WBA Super), the World Boxing Organization (WBO) and the International Boxing Federation (IBF).

The Russian has 34 wins and two losses. As an amateur, Povetkin became Olympic champion in 2004 in the category over 91 pounds.
