MOSCOW, October 4. (Itar-Tass) – Ukrainian super heavyweight boxer Wladimir Klitschko turned out to be 7.2 kilograms heavier than his opponent, Russian boxer Alexander Povetkin: 109.6 against 102.4 kilograms.
Famous boxers were present at the weghi-in: George Foreman, Zab Judah and Dereck Chisora.

Cost of organizing the match between Ukrainian and Russian boxers was estimated to be around $25 milion, according to Andrey Ryabinskiy, vice president of the Professional Boxing Federation of Russia and organizer of the bout.
Povetkin’s team won the bid for the fight by offering 23 million 233 thousand 330 dollars. “Other organizational expenses were in the range of 1.5 to 2 million dollars – given the scale of the event, it’s not a significant sum,” Ryabinskiy said.
