FORMER WBA world heavyweight champion Alexander Povetkin will face fellow Wladimir Klitschko victim Mariusz Wach in preparation for a potential clash with current WBC champion Deontay Wilder.

Povetkin is the mandatory challenger for Wilder’s title and the pair are expected to meet next year.

Alexander, who dropped a unanimous decision to Klitschko in 2013, will meet Poland’s Wach, whom Klitschko stopped a year earlier, in Kazan, Russian on November 4.

Denis Lebedev will defend his WBA world cruiserweight title against unbeaten world No 4 Lateef Kayode in the co-feature.

World-ranked cruiserweight Rakhim Chakhiev will take on California-based Londoner Ola Afolabi further down the bill.
