Boente not keen on Hrunov testing comprimise, wants NADA on both sides

Phil Jay 03/06/2013

Promoter Vlad Hrunov faces another headache after Wladimir Klitschko manager Bernd Boente proposed that his fighter and Alexander Povetkin both employ NADA testing for their heavyweight bout.

Hrunov, who bid a whopping $23million to stage the fight, explained to WBN yesterday that he is happy with Klitschko being tested by the German Nation Anti-Doping (NADA), but wants Povetkin to use Russian-based RUSADA.

Boente is thought to be sceptical about the total involvment of RUSADA for the proposed October 5 bout in Moscow though and Hrunov now has yet another problem to solve before the June 7 deadline.

With Hrunov making attempts to bend for Boente without success, the argument looks set to rumble on as both sides attempt to thrash out a deal before Friday.
