Povetkin out, Peter in

On September 11, Wladimir Klitschko will be rematching Samuel Peter, likely to be aired on ESPN. Klitschko was slated to fight mandatory challenger Alexander Povetkin, but after failing to show up at their press conference and concerned that Povetkin would pull out of the fight (and there are also rumors that Povetkin never actually signed the contract), the IBF stripped Povetkin of his mandatory status and has installed Samuel Peter. This came after Povetkin had delayed taking the fight for the two years since being made mandatory. Reportedly, Povetkin's promoter wanted the fight, but trainer Teddy Atlas wanted to hold off because he thought Povetkin still wasn't ready. The first time Peter and Klitschko fought, Peter knocked Klitschko down three times but lost a decision.

Haye now targeting Vitali?

Keeping in mind that The Sun isn't the most credible source in the world, they're reporting that Haye is lining up a September 12 date to fight the other Klitschko. A few other sources have picked up on this one as well, including the (UK) Daily Telegraph.

Klitschko-Chagaev Official?

According to The Ring, Klitschko and Chagaev have reached a deal to fight on the 20th. If this is true, we'll have more updates and analysis. Also, on his ESPN chat, Dan Rafael said that HBO would not carry a Klitchko-Chagaev bout (although that doesn't mean that ESPN, Showtime or Versus might not pick it up on short notice). See the comments to the previous post with details from Zocalo.
