Saturday October 5, Bloody Elbow presents live fight coverage of Wladimir Klitschko vs. Alexander Povetkin. HBO World Championship Boxing Klitschko vs. Povetkin airs live this Saturday, October 5 with a special afternoon fight time of 3:30 p.m. ET / PT. Bloody Elbow will have live fight coverage, including results and discussion, right here.

For fans of boxing, this is a notable moment as it marks the return of the world's top Heavyweight to US stations. Recent fights from Klitschko (and his maybe retired brother Vitali) have been shuttled off to European airwaves and streams, with no mainstream coverage in the US. Now, HBO is back on the Klitschko train. And that's a good thing. Regardless of what you think of his fighting style, Wladimir is one of the sports's biggest international stars and one of the best fighters out there today. As fans, we should be able to watch him fight.

While typically Klitschko fights are a rather foregone conclusion (after all, it's been 9 years since his last loss), this one offers a bit of suspense. The undefeated Povetkin is indeed a worthy challenger to the Klitschko crown. A decorated amateur and 2004 Olympic gold medalist, Povetkin has been rolling over opponents in impressive fashion on his way to this challenge. He hasn't faced anyone close to Klitschko's level, but then again, who in the Heavyweight ranks is even close to Klitschko's level? Maybe the answer to that question is Alexander Povetkin. We'll find out on Saturday.

Klitschko vs. Povetkin takes place in Moscow and airs live at 3:30 p.m. ET Saturday afternoon. HBO will re-air the fight later that day to open the HBO World Championship Boxing Cotto vs. Rodriguez broadcast beginning at 9:45 p.m. ET.

Join us here at Bloody Elbow for HBO World Championship Boxing Klitschko vs. Povetkin results, discussion, and live fight coverage this Saturday October 5.
