Wladimir Klitschko agrees to fight undefeated Russian Alexander Povetkin in a unification heavyweight bout in Moscow.

World heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko has revealed that he is looking forward to defending his titles against Alexander Povetkin in Moscow.

Klitschko will face the undefeated Russian in a unification fight on October 5, and the Ukrainian boxer believes that it is currently the most appealing fight in the division.

The 37-year-old told reporters: "This is the best fight that the heavyweight division has to offer at the moment.

"I've never boxed in Moscow and I'm looking forward to many Ukrainians and Russians who will come to the arena and create a special atmosphere."

Povetkin has stopped 18 opponents in his 26-fight career.
