Did you see the insane purse bid? $23 million!!!
Heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko and secondary titlist Alexander Povetkin both have bouts scheduled, but the purse bid for their mandatory bout was held Tuesday and Russian promoter Vladimir Hryunov pulled a shocker, winning with an extraordinary bid of $23,333,330.

By many millions, the bid -- believed to be the all-time record for a purse bid -- far exceeded expectations. K2 Promotions, Klitschko's company, bid $7.13 million and Sauerland Event, which promotes Povetkin, bid $6,014,444 at the ceremony at WBA headquarters in Panama City. The minimum bid was $1 million.

Rafael's Boxing Blog

Rafael Get the latest scoop and analysis on the world of boxing from ESPN.com's Dan Rafael in his blog.

"We all were totally surprised," Klitschko manager Bernd Boente told ESPN.com. "We only have to make sure that the money goes into escrow and that it's real. We are definitely willing to go through with it, but we have to make sure this is not one of those fake Don King purse bids [where he has defaulted multiple times after high bids]."

As champion, Klitschko is entitled to 75 percent of the winning offer ($17,499,997) with Povetkin due the remaining 25 percent ($5,833,333).

Asked if the purse was the biggest in Klitschko's career, manager Bernd Boente laughed and said, "By far." The total is also easily the biggest purse of Povetkin's career.

Hryunov announced that the fight, assuming Klitschko (59-3, 51 KOs) and Povetkin (25-0, 17 KOs) both win their interim bouts, will take place Aug. 31. He listed three potential sites for the bout: Moscow, Berlin and Las Vegas.

"I think this fight will wind up in Moscow," Boente said.

i know. this wont even be a fight. povetkin is nowhere near worth that much money. with his skill level alone, he should be making about $20,000 a fight. the HW division is so bad and he isnt really any better than a lot of them.

I remember the first purse bid when Povetkin became his mandatory challengers many years ago and it was a lot of money for both guy. I think I may have been in high school still when this purse big happened lol Povetkins handlers just knew he wasn't ready to challenge either Klit, so they turned down the offer and dropped on the rankings. Povetkin went the easy way to win a title (around both klits for a strap) and now that they see he wont get any better than he is currently, they cashed out when his stock was high. Povetkin is gonna get KTFO.

They had a fight ready to go in the winter of '08 and Povetkin "got hurt" (bitched out). Just let Wlad murder him and we can be done talking about this bum.
