WBC World heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder will be in Moscow, Russia on Saturday May 21st for the fourth defense of his title as he faces Alexander Povetkin.

Povetkin (30-1) has long been the mandatory challenger for the WBC belt but the match with Wilder took some time to get finalized.

Wilder made three successful title defenses as the match with Povetkin was put on the shelf several times.

Earlier this year, Povetkin's promoters in Russia won the purse bid and the rights to host the fight, and there were doubts about whether the fight would happen at all.

Well Wilder has proven his doubters wrong by accepting the challenge.

Check out The Boxing Channel Odds Review as we close in on Wilder's date with destiny in Moscow.
