Wladimir Klitschko, who recently defeated David Haye in his heavyweight unification bout, is the WBA 'super' champion but now Povetkin has a belt of his own after his victory in Erfurt, Germany on Saturday night.

Povetkin dominated his contest with Chagaev in the final stages and was awarded the win 117-113, 117-113 and 116-112 on the scorecards.

Chagaev produced some decent punches in the middle of the fight but it wasn't enough to stop him falling to defeat.
