“Everything is very simple. We made an offer Povetkin, now waiting for his reaction. We should get a response today or tomorrow.
I do not understand, where did the figure of three million. It’s a rumor. Also don’t know what confuses Povetkin. He’s not a young boxer that only started Boxing, and an experienced athlete. All he needs now is to spend a couple of major battles. He knows the level of the Mustache, knows the risks”.
