Boxing Channel analyst and former WBC World light heavyweight champion Montell Griffin talked to us about the upcoming Deontay Wilder vs Alexander Povetkin fight.
The match-up is for Wilder’s WBC World Heavyweight title and takes place in Povetkin’s backyard in Moscow.
The purse bid was won by Russian promoter Aleksey Stashkov, and Wilder will be receiving at least $4 million dollars for the fight.
Nevertheless, Wilder intends to return to the United States with the belt and title intact, and the WBC as the overseeing body has assured Wilder that judges Guido Cavalleri (Italy), Alejandro Rochin (Mexico) and Jun Bae Lim (South Korea) will provide a fair and impartial call of the fight.
