Klitschko vs Povetkin: Live stream, fight time, results, and round-by-round coverage

Wladimir Klitschko (60-3, 51 KO) faces Alexander Povetkin (26-0, 18 KO) in a big-money fight this afternoon from Moscow. BLH will have live coverage.

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

Today at 3:00 pm EDT on HBO, BoxNation, RTL, TV-1 in Russia, Sport 1 in Hungary, PolSat Sport in Poland, Main Event PPV in Australia, 3+ in Denmark, and probably some other channels around the world, the biggest heavyweight fight of 2013 will go live from Moscow, as Wladimir Klitschko defends his crown against Alexander Povetkin.

Klitschko (60-3, 51 KO) is facing on paper his toughest challenge in a while against the unbeaten Povetkin (26-0, 18 KO), a former amateur star who has been both angled toward and steered away from this fight ever since turning pro in 2005. The 34-year-old Povetkin has twice signed to face Klitschko in the past, once in 2008 and again in 2010.

But with a record purse bid by Vladimir Hryunov for this fight, it's finally here and happening. The 37-year-old Klitschko has been nearly untouchable since 2006, while Povetkin has been good but never great as a pro, something he'll have a chance to change this afternoon in Moscow.

BLH will be here with live coverage starting at 3:00 pm EDT, so join us as we kick off a big day of fights!
