Alexander Povetkin vs. Andriy Rudenko fight live

the World Boxing Council for failing a pre-fight drug test in connection to last December’s planned WBC final eliminator with Bermane Stiverne. After the positive test was revealed, the WBC withdrew their sanction of the fight and Stiverne left Russia to head home. He was replaced on a day’s notice by Johann Duhaupas, who Povetkin knocked out in six rounds.

It was the second failed test for Povetkin in 2016, after testing positive for a scheduled May fight with WBC champion Deontay Wilder. Povetkin tested positive for recently banned substance meldonium and the fight was canceled days later. There was a civil suit filed afterwards by Wilder and his promoter, who eventually won a judgement for millions of dollars. Povetkin’s attorneys are appealing.

Povetkin is also appealing the WBC’s decision to suspend him. Several other sanctioning bodies, like the IBF, WBA and WBO, followed the WBC’s lead and will not allow the boxer to enter their rankings until he sorts out his issues with the World Boxing Council.
