Former world heavyweight champion and now State Duma deputy Nikolai Valuev believes that his compatriot, holder of the interim WBC title Alexander Povetkin may not return to the ring very soon, given the stress the body is exposed to during COVID-19.
We will remind, yesterday it became known that Povetkin interrupted the training camp for revenge with Dillian White, as he tested positive for coronavirus.
“It’s a pity that Sasha got infected with the coronavirus. Will White wait? And where will he go? He is not obliged to wait, of course, he may have some kind of fight. As for the coronavirus, I myself have been ill and I know what it is. A very big load from him on the heart and lungs, beats on endurance still. It’s hard to say when Sasha is ready to perform, we don’t know what kind of lung damage, how the disease will proceed. Even the doctor is unlikely to say this, “Valuev said. in conversation with the correspondent of the portal “Championship”.
